Cardston produces approximately 200mWh of solar electricity annually from solar panels installed on two Town owned facilities. The systems are sized to net-zero the facilities, producing slightly more electricity than the facilities consume annually, saving the tax payers approximately $20,000 per year at current rates. Any excess electricity produced during high output days is fed back into the Town owned grid and distributed to other facilities in Cardston.
