Tioga Announces Completion of Gila County Solar Project

Tioga Energy made the public announcement today (Tuesday) about the completion of two solar electric systems for Gila County.

The 390 kW project is expected to generate a lifetime electricity cost savings of $500,000.

The Globe Courthouse now has a 205 kW solar electric system, designed to serve as a shade canopy for the parking lot. The Courthouse will meet about 39% of its electricity needs with solar power.

In addition, a 185 kW solar parking canopy is in place at the Central Heights Complex, where Gila County operations include the Department of Elections and the Office of Emergency Management. This sytem is estimated to meet 84% of that facility’s electric needs.

The County has avoided the expenses associated with system ownership through a 20-year solar power purchase agreement.  Tioga developed, financed, owns, operates and maintains the systems; the County will simply purchase the generated solar electricity from Tioga at rates that are lower than the local utility rates.

Tioga has also provided each facility with an educational kiosk that allows viewers to see realtime system production and weather data along with the corresponding environmental benefits of using solar energy.
