Fire Hall Solar-Electric System

The Fire Hall receives an incentive payment of 18 cents for every solar kilowatt-hour generated, under the state Solar Energy Incentive Program.

The payment for the first six months of operation (January 1 through June 30, 2008) was $422.28. The payment for July 1 through June 30, 2009 is $1,378.26. This is above and beyond the value of the electricity itself, which is roughly 10 cents a kilowatt-hour. [See current system status.]
