100 Objects/day 62: Community Center’s Solar Panels Reduce Town’s Utility Costs

Dominion Resources aims at the sun – Richmond Times-Dispatch: Top 50 Employers In Richmond, VA

In 2011, dozens of solar panels were installed on the roof of the Woodford Community Center. The addition of the panels has essentially reduced the towns utility bill to zero. The solar panels were installed by Sunstore Solar Energy Solutions of Greenville. They work by converting sunlight into energy to operate the community center. Any unused power is sold back to South Carolina Electric & Gas Co. With a population of about 185, the town applied for a federal Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant of approximately $45,000 to make all of the improvements. The life expectancy of the solar panels is more than 50 years, and the investment in the panels will pay for itself in 20 years. While Woodford still has to purchase electricity from SCE&G, the panels have significantly reduced the towns utility bill.
