Yolo County is producing more sustainable solar energy than we are using. We own and operate approximately 7 megawatts (MW) of green power. Sustainable energy and environmental stewardship are the primary reasons Yolo County made the switch to green power. What Yolo County accomplished with sustainable energy can be duplicated by other counties, cities and municipalities as a zero capital investment, revenue generating project, and it will zero out electric bills. This projects biggest benefit is the positive effect on the environment, and in addition this project was developed specifically to teach K-12 children about the environment, climate change, harvesting the sun's energy, and coexistence with other species, all of which is included in the Environmental Education and Sustainability Park located in Yolo County, California.
