Wyoming County OKs Settlement in Solar Array Collapse

August 8, 2014

The Teton County, Wyoming, commissioners have accepted a $100,000 settlement from the designers of a solar array atop the Teton County-Jackson Recreation Center that collapsed in November.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reported county officials say insurance could cover the remainder of the repair cost, which totaled nearly $300,000.

County officials said the design contract with K.Y.S.E. Structural Engineers limited the company’s liability to $100,000.

The newspaper says company officials didn’t return calls.

K.Y.S.E. was paid $17,000 for the design. The total cost of the system was $656,000.

The collapse caused 13 punctures but no structural damage to the roof. Leaks damaged the center floor, and officials say it will have to be replaced sooner than planned.
