City of Sierra Madre hosts ribbon cutting ceremony for solar array project

On Jan. 27, the City of Sierra Madre broke ground on the Sierra Madre Solar Array Project, and on April 22 – also known as Earth Day — they completed the project and hosted the official ribbon cutting ceremony.

The project, located at 611 E. Sierra Madre Blvd., contains a 554.58 kilowatt (kW) solar ground-mounted system and a 111 kW battery energy storage system (BESS). The solar panels are located on approximately two acres of city-owned property.

The solar array utilizes anti-reflective technology to reduce reflection and convert sunlight directly into electricity. The project is estimated to generate 948,332 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy, which will offset approximately 38% of the energy to the city’s water department facility, which pumps and distributes the city’s water supply.
