#283 Carling Transfer Stations Solar Compactors Project

Projects Description

This project involves the installation of two solar powered compactors each at two of Carling Township’s transfer stations to improve hauling efficiencies.  The compactors are solar powered and capable of 110V back up 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 $30,000/year with a project payback of under 3 years is expected.
