Naperville's Solar Array

Naperville's Electric Utility has expanded its use of renewable energy by adding solar power to one of its substations. Along with solar project developer SoCore Energy of Chicago, the Electric Utility has installed a 5 kW solar array on the property of the Fort Hill Drive substation located near 75th street and Fort Hill Drive.

The array, which was donated and installed by SoCore Energy, will generate solar energy to offset the substation building’s common energy requirements. The 25-panel array lies on the substation grounds located on the west side of the substation. The solar array's estimated yearly energy production is 4,500 kWh.
