MCH Signs Deal to Buy Solar-Generated Power

Madera Community Hospital has entered into a purchase power agreement with Borrego Solar of San Diego, CA to purchase power from an approximate 1 megawatt solar energy facility to be constructed on the hospital campus. This facility, once completed, will be one of the largest ground-mounted solar arrays on the property of any hospital in California. Trane Commercial Systems assisted with the development of the project. Local construction companies Valley Unique Electric and Gene Adams Paving are involved in the site development and equipment installation. The facility is expected to be operational by late summer, 2011.
