Solar Project Complete; Future Cost Savings Expected 
The Reutlinger Community
(Danville, CA)
The Reutlinger's solar panel installation project is complete and there have been many questions about the project.
 
TRC installed solar to capitalize savings of electric costs; costs that have been escalating over the past five years.   We also believe that we are helping the  
env ironment in a small way.
 
Over the 20-year term of the agreement, TRC expects to save approximately $3.5 million compared to less than $15,000 in costs. 
 
The project was funded through a power-purchase agreement. TRC has the option of buying the system back from the developer in years 5 and 10. After year 20, they own the system, and save 100 percent of all energy produced by the system.
