Project Overview

The Village of Minooka Waste Water Treatment Plant, dedicated to environmental stewardship and community leadership, has embarked on a visionary journey towards sustainable energy practices. By capitalizing on excess land resources, the plant has embraced solar energy as a pivotal solution to power its facilities with clean, renewable energy. The solar system is financed through a power purchase agreement (PPA) in which the investor owns, operates, and maintains the system and the village purchases the energy the system produces.
