Happy Earth Day! Flow Science's Solar Panels are Working Hard
Happy Earth Day! Sunny New Mexico days are making Flow Science’s solar panels work hard and its electric meter run backwards. The 37.6 kilowatt grid-tied photovoltaic solar system installed in December 2010 has produced 17.5 MWh of electricity, enough to power 53,030 light bulbs or 17,500 PCs for a day. The carbon offset is 15.0 tons, equivalent to the CO2 absorbed by 353 trees through photosynthesis or the CO2 emitted by burning 1,545 gallons of gasoline in an engine.
