New! - Horizon Solar Garden
The City of Lafayette is committed to advancing renewable energy and proud to be a part of the new Lafayette Horizon Solar Garden Project on City-owned land, in the area of 120th and Horizon Ave., that came online in February 2019. Working with developer Community Energy Solar, the City has now committed community solar subscriptions in five gardens: the Lafayette Horizon Solar Garden (operational February 2019), the Platteville Solar Garden (Summer 2019), the Alden Solar Garden (Summer 2019), and the two solar gardens along Baseline Road (built in 2013) at the City’s Water Reclamation Plant.
Currently, the City has subscribed roughly 56% of the City’s load in these community solar gardens.Staff is working diligently in 2019 to work towards solutions to 100% renewable energy.
