The city of Galt buys additional power from the Sacramento Metropolitan Utility District in winter months, but can rely on the sun for solar power in the summer, thanks to a system housed at the city’s wastewater treatment plant. It went online in mid-2011.
In the first year, the set-up saved about $40,000, according to a presentation made at Tuesday’s regular Galt City Council meeting.
The arrays (or solar panels) that move throughout the day to collect the sun’s energy are leased from SMUD under a 20-year agreement.
