The project will take advantage of the excellent solar resources in the area. The solar facility will be built under Xcel Energy's Solar Rewards Community program. Ecoplexus is working with The City of Grand Junction to build the facility on 19 acres of land owned by the City. The City of Grand Junction, along with other municipal, school district and low income entitites, will be subscribers for the power generated by the facility. The community solar array will be 2MWs in size and be directly interconnected to Xcel's grid in front of the facility. It will provide power and savings, in the form of bill credits for all subscribers to the solar garden. Ecoplexus is excited to be working with Xcel Energy and The City of Grand Junction in an effort to acheive their goals for cleaner energy. Xcel energy awarded the project to Ecoplexus in a competitive tender RFP.
