panels on the roof provide about 10-15 percent of this building’s energy needs.
They can generate 20 kiloWatts of power, which works out to a 26,000 kiloWatt hours
savings per year, or $2600 in current utility costs. It is expected that the
cost of the solar panels will be made up in energy savings over about 20 years.
This building’s roof is white and reflective, which reflects light and prevents
the building from getting too hot and requiring more cooling energy in the
