New Holstein Library Solar Electric (PV) System
In early spring of 2011, a 24 panel 4.92 kWsolar electric system was installed on the roof of the New Holstein Public Library.
The installation consists of six arrays (three on either side of the roof peak), each made up of four Kyocera KD 205 (watt) modules.
Six thousand kilowatt hours per year will be produced on average by the system, the equivalent of about two thirds the annual usage for a typical household.
Power produced will be used in the building. In the rare case where production exceeds demand, electricity will flow back onto the utility grid, earning a credit at whatever rate the Library is paying.
