The environmental benefits that will be generated from this solar system are significant. The amount of clean solar energy that the Aria plant will generate is estimated at 15,956MWh per year, and 277,754MWh over 20 years. The amount of carbon dioxide that will be displaced during the system's 20 year lifetime is approximately 191,526 metric tons, equivalent to taking approximately 40,321 cars off the road for one year.
