Cuyahoga County solar projects will save money, protect environment

New solar energy installations on three Cuyahoga County buildings will save taxpayer dollars while also protecting the environment as part of the county’s Climate Change Action Plan, County Executive Armond Budish said in a recent Newsradio WTAM 1100 article. Solar panels installed at the Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter, the Medical Examiner’s Office and the Harvard Road Garage are expected to save the county $900,000 over 25 years, according to the article. Budish said, “we have committed to adding more renewable energy into both our properties and the local grid as a whole.” The county is also assisting Lakewood with solar projects on four city-owned buildings, which are expected to save the city $855,000 in energy costs over 30 years.
