APOLLO Presentation
Sarah Love and Brent Tracy from Apollo presented Council with their findings of the energy audit they performed. Stating they had visited all the city facilities and had made the following recommendations for upgrades, interior and exterior lighting to LED for City Hall/PD, Public works, Fire Department, WWTP,  also replace in-wall heaters at Public Works and install 75ph well pump motor control at Well #1 plus upgrade aeration Basin #1 Brush. They also gave a list of projects that could be considered in the future. They also have the proposal for the solar array, stating they would install an 80KW array in the field surrounding well house on 3rd and E Street.They had also discussed install the array on the retaining wall at the treatment plant, however it was decided it wasn’t a good fit. Council was given a project cost breakdown and the conclusion was that with the savings generated by the improvements, the City could make a loan payment with those savings, meaning the project is self-funding.  They also discussed what the next steps would be, approval to proceed with the investment grade audit for the energy and solar projects and apply for the energy and solar grants, as the deadline is March 31st.  Councilwoman Isiordia asked for some information concerning solar array.  Sarah and Brent stated that they would have Scott provide this additional information to the City as soon as possible.
