Solar Energy

The City of Arcata encourages its citizens to use renewable energy sources wherever possible. In an effort to lead by example, the City has installed 2 solar electric systems on City facilities. These include a 12.1 kilowatt (kW) grid-tied, rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) system installed at City Hall and a 2.3 kW grid-tied, rooftop solar PV system at the Arcata Marsh Interpretive Center.
