Utah Olympic Oval Saves $100,000 per Year with Solar
A $1.4 million solar system is being installed at the speedskating building of the Utah Olympic Oval in Kearns, Utah, reports Deseret News.
The solar energy is expected to save about $100,000 a year on the facility’s annual $750,000 power bill.
The array will consist of more than 3,000 solar modules mounted on parking canopies and is expected to generate more than 1 million kWh annually, paying for itself in five years.
The project received a $564,000 grant from Rocky Mountain Power’s Utah Solar Incentive Program and $200,000 from Salt Lake County.
