New Solar Array Project - Power On!
The solar array at the Leveda Brown Environmental Park became operational on March 3, 2009 and was the first array to be part of Gainesville Regional Utilities Feed-in Tariff program. With the tariff, energy produced by the solar array will feed directly into the GRU grid. GRU then pays Alachua County 32 cents per kilowatt hour produced by the array.
Expected energy output of the array is an average of 150 kw per day. This represents 15% of the total energy usage of the Transfer station facilities or the energy used by 4 average homes.
Current data on the energy produced by the new solar array at the Leveda Brown Environmental Park is now available online.
The data can be viewed by clicking the following link: Leveda Brown Environ. Park Solar Page
Visitors to the site can view the power produced, the CO2 reduced and the revenue earned by the array.
