Pepco Energy and Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center Cut Ribbon to Complete Solar Electricity Project

Pepco Energy and Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center Cut Ribbon to Complete Solar Electricity ProjectPepco Energy Services, Inc., a subsidiary of Pepco Holdings, Inc.  and a leader in energy savings performance contracting, participated in a ceremonial “Switch to Solar” event on January 8, 2011, the opening day of the Pennsylvania Farm Show in Harrisburg, PA, to celebrate the completion of the Pennsylvania Guaranteed Energy Savings Act project at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center.

The ceremony took place on the Main Stage of the Farm Show Complex’s Expo Hall at 12 p.m. and highlighted recent efforts by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and the Farm Show Complex to make the facility more eco-friendly and realize savings through an energy savings performance contract implemented by Pepco Energy.

The Farm Show Complex’s green efforts include a comprehensive recycling program and the Susquehanna River Basin Commission’s installation of a demonstration storm water garden and a 20,000-gallon water storage tank, which will reduce run-off into Paxton Creek and reduce the Farm Show Complex’s water costs.

Pepco Energy completed construction in October 2010. The $3.6 million project included a 124 kW rooftop photovoltaic solar array and a variety of energy efficiency and solar hot water implementation measures. The project will save the complex more than $300,000 annually in operating utility costs and will decrease carbon dioxide emissions by 1,650 metric tons each year.

“The completion of the GESA project represents the Farm Show Complex’s dedicated investment to environmental stewardship,” said David Weiss, Chief Operating Officer of Pepco Energy. “Pepco Energy is pleased to offer its expertise and ongoing commitment to providing the energy solutions for this project to reduce costs, consumption and emissions.”

Special guests and speakers included COO of Pepco Energy David Weiss, Pennsylvania Secretary of Agriculture Russell C. Redding, Acting Secretary of the Department of General Services Elizabeth O’Reilly and officials from Pennsylvania Power and Light.
