Rudolph/Libbe Inc., based in Walbridge, Ohio, plans to develop, design and build a $7.42 million, 2 MW solar array to serve the City of Bryan, Ohio.
Key Government Finance will lease the solar array to the city, which will have the option to extend the lease or purchase the system after the initial 10-year lease term expires.
The project will use primarily Ohio materials, contractors and labor, the company notes. First Solar of Perrysburg will supply the 24,000 solar modules, Nextronex of Toledo will manufacture the inverters and API Inc. of Ridgeville Corners will provide the racks for the modules.
Rudolph/Libbe will maintain the system after installation, which is expected to be completed in February 2012. It will be built on 12 acres owned by the City of Bryan.
