Stakeholders in Springfield Township (Bucks County, PA) have engaged in ongoing discussions about the possibility of installing a photovoltaic (PV) system to serve municipal loads, and reached out to ProtoGen looking for an unbiased third-party perspective. We took time to identify and understand their goals for the system, collected their ideas, and set to work performing an economic feasibility analysis:





Our analysis found that, although PV wasn’t financially viable at the time, this could change with certain key indicators. As a result, the township and school district determined not to pursue the project, but also understand the levers related to future feasibility of the system. Should the stakeholders elect to pursue grant funding, they also have conceptual drawings, a financial model, and plenty of documentation they can refer to.
