The panels are generating a little over 8
kilowatts at the middle of the
day. During the summer, almost 60 KwH per
day are generated, and the excess
energy that we don't use is fed back into
the electricity grid. Our
meter can potentially run backwards for
part of the day!
We are avoiding about 36 kg of CO2
every day with our solar panels.
We Don't Forget the Small Things, Either
At the Media Center, we make green choices
in our everyday decisions. We buy recycled
paper goods. We serve water from a pitcher
using glasses rather than using bottled
water. We encourage all who use our
facility to recycle their paper,
newspapers, bottles and cans. Next time
you drop in, bring us your old printer
cartridges and batteries. We're a
collection point for these recyclables.
