San Jose WWTP Solar Array Addition

City of Bisbee, Arizona

PACE provided the design of the City of Bisbee’s San Jose Wastewater Treatment Plant Photovoltaic (PV) Solar Power Generation System project.  After the completion of a solar power feasibility study, PACE assisted Bisbee in selecting this green solution to offset Arizona Public Service (APS) power costs by the installation of a 400kW DC photovoltaic system that reduces annual operation and maintenance costs at the plant by approximately 30%. PACE assisted the City in the APS Performance Based Incentives and performed APS coordination through the project.  PACE also assisted with application process to receive the WIFA loan for this renewable energy upgrade and Bisbee was able to obtain the WIFA loan for the entire project cost with $400,000 forgiveness.
