Generating Electricity to Reduce Utility Bills & Emissions
The City of Charlottesville has solar photovoltaic (PV) systems installed on City maintained facilities with more planned for installation. Each system has a data monitor that tracks most, if not all of, the system’s energy production.
Solar Power Facilities on City of Charlottesville Government and School Buildings
The first three solar power systems installed represent different scales of solar power generation with a medium-large array (Charlottesville High School), a small-medium array (City Facilities Maintenance Building), and a residential-sized scale (ecoREMOD Energy House). As more systems come online, they will be added to these webpages. See descriptions and information on City of Charlottesville Solar Power Systems.
Performance data from the systems are provided online and roll up numbers will be updated periodically. This data can be used as a starting point for residential and non-residential properties considering the benefits of solar power, the potential generation capacity, and the potential for monthly reductions on utility bills.
