Partners in a new solar array project for the town of Silt gather for a ribbon-cutting Thursday. It will provide on average 100 percent of the electrical needs of Silt’s water treatment plant, yet was installed at little cost to the town under what’s called a power purchase agreement.


Solar project to power town’s water plant

SILT — Town officials last week cut the cake to celebrate a big new solar-energy project that’s been as easy as pie — or make that easy as PPA.
That stands for power-purchase agreement, an increasingly popular contractual mechanism that’s enabling governmental entities and other power users to tap the sun in a substantial way with virtually no up-front cost.

Man struck by vehicle may not live

A Grand Junction man told troopers he drank a single bloody mary in Palisade about 15 minutes before his truck slammed into an elderly couple out walking their dog in Clifton on Sunday, while a prosecutor said survival prospects were questionable for one victim as of Monday.
