Key Peninsula Solar Project Offsets Costs for Non-Profits

Peninsula Light Co. has partnered with several community non-profit organizations to install a 4.86-kilowatt solar system at the Key Peninsula Civic Center in Vaughn. Community members and PenLight representatives cut a ribbon to highlight the project during the Key Peninsula Livable Community Fair on May 10.


Peninsula Light Co. started a demonstration solar project in 2006 along with Bonneville Power Association. We’re in the process of updating our solar inverter to the latest technology. Twenty solar panels were installed to comprise a 4,000-watt photovoltaic system on the west side of PenLight headquarters. Members can view the amount of money saved, as well as how many greenhouse gases have been kept from entering the atmosphere. The project will come back online soon.
