Harmon Solar Making a Solar Power Impact in Rural Arizona

Driving around the Valley, it’s hard to miss all of the solar panel installations that are taking place at many of the schools around town. What you probably haven’t noticed is this same type of activity is also happening at schools in more rural parts of the state. Through APS’ Solar for Schools and Government program, Harmon Solar is fortunate to be a big part of the alternative energy evolution and solar panel installations that are taking place in Northern and Southern Arizona!

The program is an innovative cooperative effort to enable publicly funded K-12 school districts, publicly funded charter schools and government entities to enjoy energy savings with solar power. In 2012 alone, Harmon Solar has been awarded almost 35% of the school projects available through this program, the most granted to any one solar installer! We have completed 10 photovoltaic solar panel arrays in Cottonwood, Douglas, Oak Creek, Prescott Valley, and Dateland, and another in Gadsden is underway. The solar power systems are installed on top of new covered parking structures, not only providing energy savings with solar power but much needed shade from the Arizona sun!

Harmon Solar is excited to be a partner with APS for their solar power program, Solar for Schools and Government, which will ultimately offset approximately 62,000 megawatt hours of energy consumption or generation over its first three years. This is equivalent to removing 5,400 cars from the road.
