Challenge

The town initially didn’t have the money to purchase the system outright, which led to them investigating other options. Thanks to a grant application and a PPA structure for the deal they were able to follow through with the project.

Solution

The project received a grant from the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), which made the project financial feasible.

Results

33% reduction of electricity costs

The system has been able to impact approximately one-third of the building’s energy costs, without the town having to commit any capital to the project.
