solar panelsThe City of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, partnered with McKinstry to design, install, commission and monitor solar panels on the roof of the city’s Public Works Facility. The project is expected to meet an estimated 96% of the facility’s annual electricity consumption.

In addition to substantial energy cost savings, the City of Wauwatosa will receive more than $100,000 in incentives through the Renewable Energy Competitive Incentive Program (RECIP) offered by Focus on Energy. The statewide utility program provides incentives for cost-effective renewable energy systems installed at eligible Wisconsin businesses through a competitive proposal process. The combination of these incentives and annual energy savings will cover the cost of the Wauwatosa solar project.

“Wauwatosa is committed to finding financially responsible strategies to evaluate and deploy renewable energy systems that benefit our residents while cutting our operational costs,” said David Simpson, Director of Public Works for the City of Wauwatosa. “McKinstry delivered a comprehensive energy solution made up of the best technology possible for our city along with the financing and incentives needed to make it a reality.”

Thank you to McKinstry for this news item.
