Binghamton's water treatment plant becomes the City's first renewable energy generator

With $320,922 in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, The City of Binghamton has installed a 50 kilowatt solar photovoltaic system on a local water treatment plant. The system is the first on-site renewable energy generation system for the city and is expected to offset 23 tons of carbon dioxide a year while saving taxpayers $576,000 over its expected life of 25 years.

The system, which is composed of 18 arrays with a total of 204 photovoltaic modules was designed/built by the Kingston, New York based company EarthKind Solar.
