Pewaukee, WI, January 11, 2021 — SunVest Solar worked with the City of Fitchburg to install solar at their newly built Fire Station #3 on Syene Rd.
The 101 kilowatt (kW) system is expected to produce about 120,000 kilowatt hours annually which is expected to reduce utility costs for the City of Fitchburg by about $10,000 annually. After assistance from SunVest Solar, the City of Fitchburg will also receive $29,196 in Focus On Energy grant money which offsets 17% of the total system cost.
The City of Fitchburg has shown a commitment to reducing its carbon footprint with over 360 kW of installed solar photovoltaic modules since 2017. With this new solar installation, the city is headed towards meeting the city’s goal to meet 100% of the city’s operational energy needs by 2030.
“As a community, Fitchburg has made it clear that improving our environmental stewardship is a priority,” said Mayor Aaron Richardson. “This project is another opportunity for the City to reduce our contribution to global climate change through cleaner energy consumption, and we’re proud to work with a trusted member of the Wisconsin business community in pursuit of that goal.”
