Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for East Mesa Wastewater Treatment Facility Solar Photovoltaic Project 2017
The installation is 328.44 KW and provides 6-70% of the facility’s electricity needs. The clean energy generated from the sun will save the City more than $60,000 annually in electricity charges.
The EMWRF is the eighth City facility to use solar power. Photovoltaic systems are also in use at the Las Cruces Convention Center, City Hall, Museum of Nature and Science, Las Cruces Regional Aquatic Center, Munson Center, Sage Café, and East Mesa Public Safety Complex.
In total, the City’s 1150 KW of solar installations supply the City with almost 4% of its energy needs and are estimated to save the City more than $8.5 million in electricity costs over the next 25 years.
The ribbon cutting ceremony will begin at 11:30 a.m. Friday, April 21st, at 5051 East Lohman Ave.
