We are excited to announce that Blue Ridge Equine Clinic has partnered up with Sigora Solar to install solar (photovoltaic) panels at the clinic in Earlysville. The system is scheduled to be installed starting December 13th and should be finished by December 15th. This just happens to coincide with our holiday open house on December 13th (10am – 6pm) and we encourage you to visit and learn more about the clinic and how solar power works. Sigora Solar will have people available to answer any questions you might have for them.
The system being installed at Blue Ridge will have the capacity to generate roughly 29 kw or about 1/3 of the clinics electrical needs annually. Over the next 25 years that is enough power to equal 43 dump truck loads of coal and offset 1,240,245 lbs. of CO2 emissions. We are proud to be doing something to decrease our consumption and thankful for the money that will be saved over the life of the system.
