Lake Worth Solar Field Ribbon Cutting Ceremony 2/28/2017
On Tuesday, February 28th at 2:00pm Mayor Pam Triolo unveiled the Lake Worth Solar Energy Project located at 1200 Washington Avenue, Lake Worth, FL. The initial project developed 5 acres of an unused 63 acre landfill into a high capacity solar energy field.
The 2 megawatt (MW) solar plant is the first step in a long-term investment in solar that will make Lake Worth’s rates more competitive and position the City as a leader in renewable energy in Florida. While a few Florida cities, such as Jacksonville and Orlando, are buying solar power, Lake Worth is the state’s first municipality to own and operate a solar farm.
Lake Worth expects the initial 6,490 solar panels to generate about two percent of the City’s load –enough to power more than 230 homes per year and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by more than four million pounds. That’s the equivalent of taking 445 cars off the road. Under its contract with Siemens, the city has the ability to increase the solar farm’s capacity to as much as 10MW at the same location.
