Outpost in Mequon site of new 56kW solar array

November 11th, 2015

This week Outpost Natural Foods installed a solar panel system that covers the rooftop of its one-year old Mequon store. The project is part of the 45-year old co-op’s ongoing efforts to decrease its overall carbon footprint. The full solar installation represents the first of its kind for Outpost.

Sunvest Solar Energy Solutions of Pewaukee is the project developer and installer. The 56.32 kW system is anticipated to generate about 67,300 kWh of energy annually, or roughly 10% of the energy use at Outpost’s Mequon store location. Canadian Solar panels can each generate 320 watts of power.

Total project cost is $152,054. A grant from Wisconsin Focus on Energy for $31,343 will help to offset the project costs. Energy cost savings on the system will average $7,458 annually in today’s energy market.
