Eagle Solar & Light installed a ground mounted 176-Kilowatt solar energy system for the Hanceville waste water treatment facility. The Hanceville Water Works and Sewer Board became interested in using a solar energy system to offset their energy usage at the water treatment facility. They petitioned for the project funding by using the State Revolving Fund through the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM). In conjunction with a state-wide project aiming to reduce energy costs at waste water facilities through the Department of Energy, ADEM, and the Alabama Dept. of Economic and Community Affairs, the Board was granted the funding to proceed with the project. 50-Kilowatts of this system is directed directly back on to the Cullman Co-op grid and the remaining 126-Kilowatts powers the waste water treatment facility.
