A group of renewable energy leaders gathered Thursday to celebrate a solar array slated for construction atop the Hood River Public Works building.
Partners in the project highlighted the trailblazing aspect of bringing the solar development to town.
“This is really a pioneering effort and we hope to see it replicated (elsewhere),” Dan Orzech, Oregon Clean Power Cooperative general manager, said.
The nearly 30-kilowatt solar system, installed by Common Energy, is projected to save the city about $11,000 in electric costs in the first 10 years and nearly $97,000 over 25 years. It will also reduce carbon emissions.
The solar endeavor united various statewide and local organizations.
