Boulder Wastewater Treatment Facility

The solar energy system for the Boulder Wastewater Treatment Facility is the largest solar PV system installed as of 2009 in Boulder County. This 1 megawatt system is an important part of the City’s Climate Action Plan and will provide approximately 20% of the facility’s power requirements. The system is financed using a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with the City of Boulder. Financing was achieved during the difficult economic times of late 2008 and early 2009. Entitlements, final design and construction involved complex prairie dog relocation, wetland mitigation and construction phasing. Hartman Ely Investments provided investment capital and project management services for this solar development.
