Under the terms of the solar power purchase agreements between Tioga Energy and the county agencies, Tioga will own and operate the projects, and sell the generated electricity back to the county over 15 years.
The solar systems will be located across the region, including at three firehouses, four libraries and schools in seven districts. Tioga says its installation partner, a joint venture between Pro-Tech Energy Solutions and Huen Electric, Inc., will engineer and construct the systems.
The project is expected to be completed by April 2012. It has been financed through a financial structure that is said to combine the benefits of low-interest municipal bonds with the sale of solar renewable energy certificates and federal tax incentives.
