Ashland, Oregon Launches PV Pilot Program

June 1999 - The City of Ashland, Oregon is launching a pilot program, Solar Ashland, to deploy up to 25 kW of photovoltaics on public buildings within the city. The installations will be funded through a combination of grant monies supplied by the Bonneville Environmental Foundation and customer contributions. Starting this fall, interested customers can contribute $4 per month to support the solar projects. The City will partner with "host" institutions to install 5-kW systems and display solar energy educational materials for the public. In a second phase, the City, which operates its own electric department, hopes to market solar power and systems directly to the Ashland public.
