The City of Atlanta has launched a new program called Solar Atlanta, which will install solar panels on 28 municipal buildings such as recreation centers, fire stations, and one police station. The program will use funding from federal tax credits as well as power purchase agreements to acquire the photovoltaic equipment at no up-front cost to taxpayers.

The installations from the Solar Atlanta program are projected to cut the city’s CO2 emissions by 73 million pounds and save up to 216 million gallons of water by 2030, in addition to providing significant energy savings for the city.

“It is my hope that the City of Atlanta will serve as a model for other cities and private commercial buildings to take advantage of power purchase agreements to finance their own solar installations,” says Stephanie Benfield, Director of the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability.
