Solar production tops 100% in March & April

March was not very snowy in Carbondale, but it was sunny.  April was even better.  Consequently, our PV panels generated 122% in March and 151% in April of the electricity Third Street Center actually needs.

The extra power joined the electrons in the grid to power other facilities and reduce the need to burn fossil fuels for electricity.  The solar production also keeps our electrical costs to tenants in the building low. Go Solar!
