Mountain Regional Water has been working on a unique solar installation for several years now and it finally is in final design stages. The District will be installing, the first of its kind in Utah, a Floating Solar Array on our Signal Hill Treatment Plant raw water storage pond within the Promontory development. The goal is to offset approximately 92% of our electrical usage at that facility. This floating array and our involvement with the Summit County Power Purchase Agreement for electricity from the Elektron Solar project, located in Tooele County, Utah, will get the District to nearly a totally renewable energy usage position.
This project would not be possible without our partners, Ameresco and Rocky Mountain Power and its Blue Sky Participants.Official Press Release
As the project progresses and we have images and updates we will include them here so check back as we move through final design and begin construction in the Spring of 2024!
