Local governments can take advantage of diverse solar programs to install solar where they use energy or on other land they own. Borrego Solar is a trusted partner to public sector customers helping navigate complex policy details while designing and building commercial solar and energy storage systems that perform as expected.
Some Borrego government customers install solar on-site to offset their on-site energy use (i.e. net metering). Others host solar on land they own that offsets energy used elsewhere (i.e. virtual net metering or RES-BCT). The City of North Adams, MA, is an example customer where they are hosting a solar array on their closed landfill site to offset the city’s energy use used elsewhere as part of the virtual net metering program.
“In terms of challenges with this project, there really weren’t any. We have a great partner in the Anaheim Public Utility and a great partner with Borrego Solar.”
