Wisconsin city’s solar project reduces emissions

The City of Wauwatosa first set significant emissions reduction and sustainability goals more than a decade ago and last year installed a solar energy system on the roof of its city hall complex, which is already seeing significant results.

The solar array was completed during the spring of 2021 and has generated 458-megawatt hours of renewable energy for the city, more than half of the site’s total energy usage over that time. It also has reduced carbon emissions by 358 tons.

The renewable energy project covers Wauwatosa’s one-acre city hall complex, which includes its civic center and public library. The 1,036-panel solar array was installed by Wisconsin’s Arch Solar C&I with a 389-kilowatt platform from SolarEdge.
