Abstract: Yolo County, California, made history in July when officials installed a 1 MW solar PV project to supply power to both a jail and juvenile center. The project is noteworthy for at least two reasons: It is the first known use of qualified energy conservation bonds (QECBs) and, subsequently, the first known combined use of QECBs and clean renewable energy bonds (CREBs) in the country. This article outlines the process the county underwent to finance the installation as well as the ways in which it helped make the process easier for itself.
