City to highlight solar energy initiative, part of the 100% Savannah Plan

 

SAVANNAH (Feb. 27) – This Wednesday, March 1, at 10 a.m. the City is inviting media outlets to the rooftop of the Floyd Adams Jr. Complex Administrative Building to learn more about its solar energy initiative, all part of the 100% Savannah Plan.

 

On July 14, 2022, City Council unanimously approved a contract with Cherry Street Energy to install solar at or on 19 City facilities. This contract supports the City’s 100% Savannah clean energy goals and will provide financial savings for the City through reduced electricity bills. The City has completed two installations to date, one at the Police Training Building on Edwin Street (222.72 kW) and one at the Administration Building at the Adams Complex (151.60 kW). 

 

Representatives from the City’s Office of Sustainability will be available at Wednesday’s media tour for interviews to discuss this initiative further.

 

As part of this portfolio, the City partnered with Cherry Street Energy and its subcontractor, Interurban Solar, to provide workforce training to several unemployed and underemployed Savannahians. Training participants had the opportunity to gain paid, on-the-job experience on the Adams Complex project and will continue to work on subsequent projects. 

 

Additional facilities will have solar panels installed throughout 2023, with future opportunities for media outlets to learn more about the progress the City continues to make toward achieving a renewable energy future.
