Case study: Hickman County adds 180kW to municipal buildings
In fall 2018, LightWave Solar commissioned several solar electric systems for the benefit of Hickman County in Tennessee, totaling 180 kilowatts across four sites. We installed 515 solar panels, 11 inverters and online monitoring that tracks the generation of all four systems.
Brian Stone, Senior Account Executive, NORESCO, said, “Our energy savings project with Hickman County provides an innovative mix of renewable energy assets and traditional building improvements to help the county optimize energy and water savings and fiscal stewardship.”
In terms of the solar savings alone, Hickman County can expect to see about $20,000 in annual savings over the next three decades, and even more as rates increase. The rooftop solar systems are connected to the Hickman County Justice Center, Detention Center, Administration Building and Emergency Operations Office.
“LightWave and NORESCO worked closely to make sure Hickman County received the best value possible,” says JP Plumlee, LightWave Solar Project Developer. “Our teaming arrangement leveraged everyone’s strengths and made for a smooth project,” he says.
