The array was developed to supply energy to the county office building and county jail utility accounts. This system will produce more than 2.8 million kWh of lower-cost renewable energy annually. Over the projected 25-year term, the agreement will result in more than $3 million in cost savings for the county and its residents-all at no cost to the community.
“This project allows Madison County to add risk-managed, affordable energy to help meet their power needs without requiring them to own or maintain a solar system.”

“The system will produce more than 2.8 million kilowatt hours of renewable energy annually, offsetting an estimated 73 percent of the county campus’ energy usage. County officials say that could save taxpayers roughly $3 million over the projected 25-year term of the agreement.”
