Apache Junction installed its first city-owned solar power panel as part of Plaza Drive improvements near the Mountain Health & Wellness building. The panel powers a wireless communication system and irrigation controller, allowing the city to avoid connecting to the electrical grid and paying the cost of metered power. The 135-watt panel is mounted on a 10-foot poll and is expected to save the city $400 a year. If the solar panel proves successful, the city will consider installing panels as part of other projects.
