Tioga Energy, a provider of renewable energy services to commercial, government and non-profit organizations, has completed two solar electric systems for municipally owned facilities in Gila County, Ariz. The project - totaling 390 kW - is expected to generate a lifetime electricity cost savings of nearly $500,000, according to Tioga.

The Globe Courthouse in Gila County now features a 205 kW solar electric system, designed to serve as a shade canopy for the facility's parking lot. Additionally, a 185 kW solar parking canopy was installed at the Central Heights Complex, home to Gila County operations. That solar energy system is estimated to meet 84% of the facility's electricity needs. Both systems were constructed by Phoenix-based Kitchell.

Tioga developed, financed, owns, operates and maintains the systems; the county has entered into a power purchase agreement.
