Bucks County’s commissioners will hear Wednesday about how county government can increase its use of solar energy. ProtoGen’s Kevin Wright will present his company’s findings at the board’s 10:30 a.m. Wednesday meeting in Doylestown. “We reviewed 25 county-owned locations,” Wright said. “We defined the solar capacity of those locations, and we determined the pathway to generate about 75% of all the electricity the county government uses.” That electrical demand comes from the county prison, government buildings and senior homes, among others. ProtoGen is a small energy-consulting outfit with three partners, but it has big goals, Wright said. “We are trying to transform the market place,” he said.
