Technology

Blue Marmot Solar Park will consist of more than 150,000 photovoltaic solar panels mounted on a single-axis tracking system for a combined output of 50 MW. Photovoltaic solar cells have no moving parts and convert sunlight directly into electricity via the photoelectric effect.

Environment

Environment

Blue Marmot Solar Park saves more than 65 million gallons of water each year and displaces carbon emissions from fossil fuel power plants, a major contributor to climate change. Solar energy also enhances air quality by helping to mitigate the health effects of harmful air pollutants.
Landowners

Landowners

Blue Marmot Solar Park provides a stable form of income to local landowners. Millions of dollars will be paid to the solar park’s landowners through the life of the project.
Communities

Community

Blue Marmot represents a capital investment of approximately $80 million. The project will create hundreds of full-time equivalent jobs during construction as well as several permanent jobs during the life of the project.
