Town of Carbondale Water Treatment Plant

Town of Carbondale Water Treatment Plant

Project Description

This commercial solar installation on the Western Slope of Colorado was the result of a competitive bidding process employed by the Town of Carbondale. The project is one of three photovoltaic systems that Sunsense designed and installed for the Town. All three projects were part of a Power Purchase Agreement that will save the Town an estimated $200,000 over the course of the 20 year contract.

“Sunsense Solar responded to our RFP to evaluate and develop solar through PPA’s in a detailed and thoughtful manner.  After receiving a notice to proceed, Sunsense did an excellent job evaluating the solar potential of numerous sites and designing a project that worked for the both the Town and our financing partner.  With some complicated sites, Sunsense delivered a quality project utilizing some innovative mounting systems.  Sunsense met every challenge head on with limited direction from our Town Staff.”
