R.E. Dimond and Associates prepared mechanical and electrical plans and specification for the Hamilton County Community Corrections facility. This project included a new heating water system and the addition of solar panels .
The panels are placed on the roofs of the jail, work release building, juvenile detention facility, woman’s annex and the administrative building in Noblesville. Solar panels are also arrayed on county-owned land nearby and provide enough energy to air condition and heat the jail and county health department buildings.
As one of the largest solar installations in the state, the Hamilton County Corrections project 9300 solar panels will generate enough electricity to power about 500 homes and save millions of dollars in utility costs.
