Solar for the City of Norman, Oklahoma
City of Norman, OklahomaLocation: OK | Industry: Municipal | Technology: Electricity | Role: Developer
The City of Norman & BioStar Renewables have achieved interconnection and are producing renewable electricity at the city’s new solar project which serves the Vernon Campbell Water Treatment Plant and Water Reclamation Facility in Norman, Oklahoma. The 2.27 MW solar project is expected to produce more than 3,000,000 kWh of electricity each year and will displace over 2,126 metric tons of CO2 equivalent emissions per year, the equivalent of providing 438 homes with electricity or 271,000 gallons of gasoline consumed for an entire year. The clean energy generated by the solar arrays will reduce the annual kWh required from the local utility company by approximately 30%.
BioStar developed the project, as well as providing the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services, as well as ongoing operations and maintenance (O&M) services. E Light Electric partnered with BioStar and played a pivotal role in delivering the project. Implementation of these solar arrays will set the city on a path toward achieving their Net-Zero Carbon goal across city buildings, and marks the beginning of a transition to more balanced energy mixture.
