Naperville 5 kW Solar Installation

23 Apr 2010 8:52 AM | Michelle Hickey

The City of Naperville, Department of Public Utilities-Electric (DPU-E) is expanding its use of renewable energy and raising public awareness by initiating a project to bring solar power to the department.  DPU-E is currently working with a local solar project developer, SoCore Energy, in building a 5 kW solar array on the property of the Fort Hill Dr substation at the intersection of 75th Street and Fort Hill Drive in Naperville.  The array, which is being donated and installed by SoCore will provide additional energy to offset the substation building’s energy needs.  The 25 panel array will be placed on the ground, and will have an estimated yearly energy production of 4,500 kWh.

This clean energy project will provide a visual example of a renewable energy source.  DPU-E will use the project to enhance public awareness and aid in determining the feasibility and efficiency of solar power.
