GCEA Hires Solar Consultant

Gunnison County Electric Association (GCEA) contracted with North Star Renewables, LLC based in Boulder, CO to review proposed sites for a future solar project. North Star reviewed 16 potential solar sites within GCEA’s service territory both onsite and via desktop. Each potential site was ranked in consideration of multiple factors including potential solar gain, viable array size, relative cost to develop, distance to interconnection, potential wildlife habitat impacts, and land ownership interests.

GCEA will pursue potential solar development at the most viable identified sites once the Sunshine Park and Taylor Hydro projects take greater shape.
