Solar Alliance Energy installs arrays for two Lexington, Kentucky, fire stations

Solar Alliance Energy announced it has completed the installation of two solar projects at two Lexington, Kentucky, fire stations in the first step of what the company plans to be further inroads into the first responder market. Each solar project is 13.1 kW.

“These projects represented a unique opportunity for our team,” said CEO Myke Clark. “Expanding our business to work with first responders and reduce their operating costs was a key priority. This is a great first step, and one for which the City of Lexington and the Lexington Fire Department are to be commended for their innovative approach to reducing costs.”

Solar Alliance is proud to provide energy security to first responders and reduce operating costs for these critical services. The solar systems are expected to supply 30 to 40% of the energy required to power the stations. The Lexington solar projects were installed in partnership with Boyd CAT, a regional Caterpillar dealer that Solar Alliance has worked with on several projects.

Fire stations are energy-intensive because firefighters occupy them and use communication systems in them on a constant basis. In addition, fire apparatus exhaust systems and other equipment require an above-average amount of electricity.

“The fire department exists to serve the needs of the community, and part of that responsibility means being judicious with the resources we are offered,” said Lexington Fire Chief Jason Wells. “We are excited to be on the ground level of such an exciting initiative.”
