Solar Power Summary for 2017

Solar Power Summary for 2017

The Solar power installations at the Public Works Building and the Airport have now completed their first full calendar year of operation and have generally performed well.  Our target for total generation was 36 MWh of energy from the two systems combined.  Our actual generation was 35.1 MWh with 14.8 MWh from the airport installation and 20.3 MWh from the system on the Public Works building. 

For those that felt we did not have a great summer last year the data from the solar panels supports that. During the summer our solar generation actually declined from a peak in May dropping some in June, lower yet in July and only a slight increase in August, but still lower than May.
