City Administrator of Silvis, IL
The Silvis Police Department solar array will offset 98% of their annual energy usage, the equivalent of 198 tons of greenhouse gas each year, while simultaneously saving the department upwards of $19,000 on energy costs in the first year alone.
This project was made possible by a Power Purchase Agreement, a unique financing structure which allows a third party owner to take advantage of the tax incentives while the City of Silvis enjoys reduced energy costs.
One unique aspect of this project is the addition of 7-10 commercial honeybee hives on the array site that will be maintained by a local professional beekeeper. Increasing bee habitat and supporting a local business, just more benefits of going solar for the Silvis Police Department.
