18 Buildings Going Solar in D.C.

Washington DCSolar panels are being installed on 18 federal buildings in Washington, D.C., according to The Washington Free Beacon.

The story says that The General Services Administration has signed the contract with WGL Energy Systems for the additions, which will include panels on the Ronald Reagan Building. The value of the power-purchase agreement (PPA) is about $150,000 per year. The move was in line with the Obama Administration’s desire to increase solar use across the federal government.

The solar panels are expected to generate 3.75 million kWh of energy annually. The PPA includes a charge of $0.04 per kWh, the story says.

The U.S. Supreme Court earlier this week temporarily blocked the administration’s Clean Power Plan pending a full review of the legal challenges it faces.
