Four Fallbrook fire stations will eradicate more than 2,400 tons of pollution from the atmosphere with the use of solar power systems that will be installed by Sullivan Solar Power. The project will also offset the costs the stations are currently spending for electricity.
"[Going solar] will allow the District to reallocate several thousand taxpayer dollars monthly to project financing and other essential services," said Greg Wilson, Battalion Chief for the NCFPD, "This project will insulate the District from future utility rate increases while promoting an environmentally responsible image in our community."
"North County Fire Protection District realizes that energy savings means saving money to put toward firefighting rather than giving it to SDG&E. They are setting an example for the community as to what we all should be doing," said Daniel Sullivan, founder and president of Sullivan Solar Power.
