Holy Cross Energy finds more solar funds

Vail Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL VALLEY, Colorado – Holy Cross Energy, which provides power to a region that includes the Vail Valley, has set aside another $250,000 for renewable energy projects this year.

In May, the energy cooperative announced its nearly $1.1 million budget for renewable energy generation projects had been allocated.

Participation in Holy Cross’s rebate incentive program has grown exponentially – from the first 1.6-kilowatt-system installed in 2004, which generated a $3,200 rebate to a projected addition of 625 kilowatts worth $1.25 million in 2009. The 2009 projection is more than double the 2008 total of 284.7 kilowatts installed.

By the year’s energy, Holy Cross expects to have added 1,210 kilowatts of renewable energy generation to its system in the last five years.
