Riverside County, California has recently purchased solar power systems to provide clean energy to its citizens and the 2 million visitors it gets each year. The county has 8 projects in the works that will generate 12 MW of solar. These projects will provide just a little over 40 percent of Riverside’s energy needs. Over the next 30 years, Riverside is estimated to achieve more than $200 million in savings.
Not only will the county be better off financially, but it will generate more than 1,000 jobs throughout the process. It includes nearly 300 jobs during the construction phase in itself.
The project did not require any public capital investments. Though, the savings alone will compensate for all systems by the end of the year.
Communities in California are starting to become aware of the savings that solar power offers and are taking advantage. At Titan Solar we are happy to show you how you can join the solar power team and save!
