GEM Energy Solar Array Adds Power to Toledo Zoo AltEnergyMag.com September 18, 2014TOLEDO, Ohio, Sept. 17, 2014 – A 22-acre brownfield site in South Toledo, Ohio, once in receivership, is starting a new life as home to a field solar array that will supply about 30 percent of the Toledo Zoo's electricity each year.
Bordered by a buffer zone with newly planted trees and green spaces for native grasses that will be planted this fall, the 28,500-panel solar array is one of the largest in the nation to supply power to a zoo.
GEM Energy celebrated the commissioning of the array in July with business and local government leaders.
The array and property are owned by a group of investors as part of a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) structured by GEM Energy, which also designed, developed and constructed the solar array. The ground-mount system contains no moving parts, and is expected to produce approximately 2.1MW per year. This is equivalent to the electricity use of 308 homes and has offsets the greenhouse gas emissions of 472 passenger vehicles.
