Summit County installed photovoltaic energy systems on several County facilities in 2010. These systems offset County energy costs by using renewable energy from sunlight to produce electricity.
In addition to the photovoltaic systems, Summit County has improved the energy efficiency of its facilities by installing efficient light fixtures, adding insulation, sealing building envelopes, upgrading to more efficient heating and cooling systems and incorporating controls systems.
Funding for these projects was provided through Summit County Referred Measure 1A, approved by voters in 2008 for the specific purpose of energy projects at County facilities.
