Wildwood Fire Department
Wildwood, NJ
We were looking for a consistent partner we could trust. We wanted to keep things moving, and we knew Braggawatt could get it done.
Solar building project

Wildwood Crest Volunteer Fire Department (WCVFD) has two goals:

  1. Positively impact their New Jersey community
  2. Reduce operating costs to save taxpayer money

With goals like these, installing a solar energy system seemed like a no-brainer for this nonprofit. However, the department struggled to find a partner willing to invest in their small municipal project.

But then a trusted, local installation partner, Castle Energy, suggested Braggawatt. After a simple conversation and project estimate, the department found the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) terms they’d been searching for. With no upfront investment, they were able to quickly go solar to reduce their energy costs.

"We looked for a while, and these were just the right terms. Braggawatt had exactly what we wanted and we said ‘we’re going to stick with this.’ We wanted to move quickly, and they could."

Commissioner of Public Affairs & Public Safety, Wildwood Crest, NJ
Savings for the City
WCVFD is an all-volunteer department serving a community of 3,500 year-round residents (and as many as 80,000 seasonal visitors!). As representatives and residents of the city, the department’s 40 active members know that lower station operating costs mean more tax dollars left for community improvement, local events, and perhaps even larger paychecks.
