Mesa recently opened the largest solar facility in city history at the Red Mountain Library, 635 N. Power Road.

The facility will generate 560,599 kilowatt hours of energy annually and save the city $425,000 over 20 years. The system is rated at 346.9 kilowatts.

In April, the City Council approved the next solar project at the Red Mountain Police Station, to be completed in July, which will complement the 1.1 megawatts of existing systems now attached to city facilities. The city boasts solar energy production of 1.9 million kilowatts per year, the same as avoiding 186 homes worth of carbon dioxide-based energy use.
