A south Toledo brownfield is starting a brand new life with the completion of a 2.1 MW solar array, designed, developed and constructed by Rudolph/Libbe and GEM Energy, of the Rudolph/Libbe Companies.
The Toledo Zoo is purchasing power from the array to supply about 30 percent of its electrical needs per year, under an exclusive power purchase agreement designed by Rudolph/Libbe Companies. The zoo estimates energy savings to be in the range of $200,000.
We’re honored to support the Toledo Zoo’s continuing mission of environmental stewardship. Below are links to the news coverage.
