Solon Completes Solar Work on Water Treatment Plant in ArizonaRandall Hackley
Solon Corp., a solar power-plant provider, completed construction of a photovoltaic system at a reverse-osmosis water-treatment facility in the southern Arizona town of Gila Bend. No costs were disclosed.
Solon said in a statement that the system is expected to offset the energy usage of the water-treatment plant by 86 percent, saving the town money by reducing utility bills. The project was financed through an Arizona state water infrastructure finance authority grant for drinking water improvements, Solon said.
