The roof of the public library in Hedgesville, WV sports an impressive, 111-module solar system comprising 335-watt, high performance Panasonic solar modules, along with all the associated inverters, racking, wiring and monitoring systems.
EBSCO Information Services, a provider of research grants. databases, e-journals, magazine subscriptions, e-books and discovery service to libraries, funded the project with a $100,000.00 grant. EBSCO is based in Ipswich, MA. Milestone Solar Consultants was chosen to install the system through a competitive bidding process.
The system’s capable of producing more than 200 kWh on a good day – freeing up funds formerly used to pay electric bills for the library to use on other important community services they deliver.
