Pat Williamson, Sheriff, Jasper County Jail, Rensselaer, IN

I didn’t pay much attention to the jail’s energy system other than our energy bills and the complaints we got about how cold the jail was. Now, with our own solar system, we’re producing over 50% of our electricity needs even in the dead of winter, we’ve reduced our energy costs significantly, and I don’t get any complaints about the cold. I find myself on the real-time monitoring system throughout the day, tracking our energy production and use. Saving taxpayer money on energy is a huge benefit.
