2015 Solar Expansion

Expanded Fence2

Site preparation began in early March after the snow melted off with the fenced area being enlarged to accommodate 8 - 245' long arrays.  The sod was stripped off, site flattened, then a weed barrier with 4" of gravel cover was put on.  The electrical conduits were installed for these 4 arrays and empty conduits for the next 4 arrays were also installed.  Each array will have 180 - 270 watt modules for a capacity of 48.6 kW x 4 arrays = 194.4 kW for this $490,000 expansion.  A racking system using screw type anchors is being used to support the solar modules.  This reduces installation time, costs and is a simple effective way to install a ground mount system.

Construction was substantially complete April 14th and the system was energized.  Output monitoring is available at: 194 kW Monitoring.  This expansion will increase the amount of renewable energy available to our customers under the voluntary renewable energy rate offering.
