“We were challenged by limited land and roof space and Vanguard custom designed an innovative solution that involved constructing a solar canopy structure over our water treatment plant's aeration tanks. We are now saving approximately $80,000 annually by producing nearly 40 percent of our electricity needs at maximum output from the clean power of sunlight. We are thrilled with the economic and environmental benefits of our solar electric system.”
