Boulder Housing Partners is Bringing Solar Power to Residents
Boulder Housing Partners (BHP) and GRID Alternatives (GRID) are finalizing the installation of a new solar garden in North Boulder that is 100% dedicated to offsetting energy use for low-income residents. The City of Boulder is providing financial support to this solar project to help maximize the utility bill savings for residents. The solar array is anticipated to begin producing renewable energy beginning in 2021.
BHP will use the estimated energy cost savings of $647,237 over 20 years to both reduce operating expenses and provide direct utility bill savings to its residents.
“Electricity costs are increasing faster than inflation, and this is one way to fix these costs for BHP and its residents—providing a long- term solution for sustainable and low cost energy for both,” said Jeremy Durham, executive director of BHP. “We are pleased to continue this important partnership with GRID.”
