Lake|Flato Goes Solar

Posted by on 8/2/12 at 03:06am

Big news — A 10.2 kW photovoltaic array will be installed on the roof of our office within the next week! The PV panels will be installed in a 30′ x 34′ area on the garage roof, where the solar resource is greatest. The CPS Energy rebates and federal tax credit for the array made the payback really speedy. In addition to a great payback equation, the array will bolster our efforts to earn LEED EBOM certification for the office and will be a great opportunity for us to all learn more about how this technology works and performs.
