Demand for shares in an eastern Washington community solar installation was so strong, sponsoring utility Inland Power & Light boosted capacity with a second array.
The project’s second phase, completed in late March, added a 20 kW ground-mount array to the existing 30 kW array that went into service last fall
“The project sold out immediately,” said John Francisco, chief of energy resources for Inland Power.
Unit holders will get credit for their portion of the array’s power production, along with a pro rata rebate from the state under Washington’s Renewable Energy Cost Recovery program.
Inland Power & Light serves about 39,000 residential and commercial customers in 13 counties in eastern Washington and northern Idaho. Founded in 1937, it is the largest electric cooperative in Washington.
