City of Monona
LOCATION: Monona, Wisconsin | CAPACITY: 148 kW (total on 4 sites) | COMPLETION DATE: December 2013
The City of Monona, in south-central Wisconsin, was the first to take advantage of Solar Connections’ Solar Services Agreement, which will yield 10’s of thousands of dollars in reduced operational expense for the City in the first several years of this program. After year 6, the City has the option to buy out the assets at a depreciated value, and own 100% of the system for the remaining 19 years of the equipment’s 25 year warranty.
Monona sees this as the least expensive way to go beyond energy efficiency and actually make positive progress toward their 25 by 2025 Energy Independence sustainability goal.
