A 22-acre brownfield site in Toledo, Ohio, that was once in receivership now hosts a 2.1 MW solar array that will supply about 30% of the Toledo Zoo's electricity each year.
The solar array and property are owned by a group of local investors led by Rudolph/Libbe. Rudolph/Libbe and subsidiary GEM Energy designed, developed and constructed the solar array and structured the exclusive power purchase agreement with the Toledo Zoo.
The project was built with 28,500 Calyxo thin-film solar modules and Nextronex inverters and combiner boxes. AP Alternatives LLC supplied steel racks for the fixed-tilt ground-mount system.
