Summit County Justice Center

The 220 kW system came online October 12, 2015 and will produce an average of 310,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electric energy each year, roughly 20-25% of the campus’ annual usage.

The electricity cost reduction is anticipated to be $24,000 annually, $600,000 over the next 25 years. The Summit County Justice Center is a huge consumer of electricity. The Justice Center houses the Sheriff’s Office, county jail, and emergency dispatch center that operate 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Also located in the Justice Center are the District and Justice Courts. Altogether, the facility uses 1,400,000 kWh each year. Reducing electricity consumption by 20-25% at this location makes a big impact.
