Whitestone Transfer Station Solar Compactors Project

Projects Description

This project involves the installation of solar powered compactors at each of Whitestone Township’s two transfer stations McDougall to improve hauling efficiencies.  The compactors are solar powered and will be equipped with generators as backups for periods where insufficient sunlight is available to meet load demand.  Installation of compactors at these two sites is expected to reduce hauling costs by over $40,000/year with a project payback of under 4 years is expected.
