Solar Proposal.pdf is the basic proposal made by the vendor. It will indicate the specs for the system and shows locations for solar panels. The proposal indicates that the project covers 80% of current electrical output; however, when the project is completed, it will actually cover 100% of our electrical needs. Part of the project includes converting the main heating for the John Kline Welcome Center to gas. This is more efficient for the type of heat (radiant floor) used. It also will lengthen the lifespan of the compressors for the full system. Once the conversion is complete, it will result in about a 20% decrease in electrical demand.
Solar Analysis.pdf is a projection of possible costs if the maximum amount of money is financed over the full period of amortization. One of the columns includes additional gas costs that may be incurred once the final project is complete.
Solar Proposal Data.pdf is a document with much more detailed information regarding the solar projections and output.
