Town installing solar panels at water well

VAEDAMAN — The town of Vardaman is installing solar panels at one of its three water wells.

WCBI-TV reports Norman Griffin of Blue Spectra Solar is providing a 50,000-watt system that will produce about 90,000 kilowatts of electricity a year.

Mayor James Casey says Vardaman uses 84,000 kilowatts each year.

Casey says the solar panels will be installed on the town’s largest water well. He says the well uses about $1,000 of electricity a month. He says the panels will furnish electricity for that well.

Griffin hopes to have it on line within 30 days.

After 10 years, Casey said the town will take over operation of the solar facility.
