The Star City School District and Yorktown Water Association dedicated new solar projects on Thursday, in collaboration with Today’s Power Inc.
The two solar projects equal 1.5 megawatts (MW) and occupy approximately 12 acres of land. All energy generated by the two arrays will be sold to SCSD and Yorktown Water for the duration of the 20-year solar power services agreement (SPSA), according to a press release.
Construction on the 1.5 MW system began in late 2020 and was completed in June 2021. C&L Electric was a project partner.
“Through technology and collaboration, this project exemplifies a forward-thinking approach to meeting the future needs of both the school district and Yorktown Water,” said TPI President Michael Henderson. “This project demonstrates that working together to co-locate their individual projects at one location saves on site development, construction efficiencies, and grid interconnection costs, resulting in overall savings for SCSD and YWA.”
