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 two 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.
