Solar in Lexington

Lexington has been steadily adding solar power production to our municipal facilities for many years.

Solar Arrays on Hartwell Avenue

An aerial view of the ground- and roof-mounted solar arrays at the Hartwell Avenue composting facility. This 1.62 megawatt facility has been operating since May 10, 2017.

We also have rooftop solar arrays on 5 of our school buildings, as well as Cary Library.

As of January 18, 2024, we have generated 29,621,200 kWh of electricity.

That's enough energy to power 2,646 homes for a year!
