The city of Monona was awarded with the Most Innovative Renewable Energy Project in 2013 by a state renewable energy non-profit, RENEW.
According to a release, the city was honored for its use of solar arrays on the rooftop of three municipal buildings including city hall, the public library and the public works garage. A fouth array will be connected atop the public works department Jan. 23.
The solar arrays produce more than 210,000 kilowatt-hours equating to 30% of the building's combined energy use, according to the release.
With the addition of a fourth solar array, the Monona project will become the largest solar project serving a municipality in Wisconsin.
