The City of Alma to Build Second Solar Array!

Posted on: April 5, 2022

 

After successfully implementing their first solar venture, a 520-kW array at the wastewater treatment plant, the City of Alma has decided to continue its partnership with Entegrity Energy Partners to implement the project’s second phase. LED lighting upgrades throughout several city facilities and the new 625-kW array, both currently underway, will save the City over $45,000 annually after installation is complete.  

Mayor Jerry Martin spoke on the project’s development, stating, “From this project’s launch, we’ve maintained the goals to free up funds, reduce taxpayer burden, and invest in our community. Since our City’s energy is split between two utility companies, we knew that separate arrays would be required to create the most savings. We’re thrilled to not only produce more solar energy but reduce our overall consumption with the efficient LED lights in city facilities.” 

Employing solar energy will reduce the City’s annual greenhouse gas emissions by 904 metric tons. This sum is equivalent to the emissions from consuming 88,000 gallons of gas or powering 164 homes for a year. 

“This solar project allows Alma to hedge against future inflation in energy costs while shifting to clean energy for City facilities. It’s a win for the community and serves as yet another example of how the energy sector is changing,” added John Coleman, Entegrity’s Regional Director.  

Entegrity is an energy services, sustainability, and solar development company. Our comprehensive service package includes energy savings performance contracting, commissioning, energy modeling, building testing, lighting solutions, renewable energy, water conservation, and sustainability consulting.
