Cinder City Plans Solar Project

A solar installation project at the City of Altoona-owned Solis Circle housing project, located at 1511 Devney Drive, is beginning this week.

The rooftop solar photovoltaic project, funded primarily through an Energy Innovation Grant from the Wisconsin Office of Energy Innovation, will provide up to 40 kilowatts of solar power to the residents of Solis Circle, and shave an estimated $283, 130 off of the Solis Circle electric bill over the next twenty-five years.

Solis Circle is a 25-unit housing complex in a former assisted-living facility that features efficiency, one-, and two-bedroom units. The project was developed by the City, in partnership with local nonprofit Joining Our Neighbors Advancing Hope (JONAH) and C&M Home Builders and Real Estate.
