Falcon Heights Solar Design and Install

Applied Energy Innovations installed this 8.33 kW solar electric system in Lake Elmo, MN in September 2012. The owner wanted to assert his energy independence, fight climate change, and save money on electricity. AEI installed 34 245-watt PV modules for a total system rating of 8.33 kW. We expect the system to produce over 9,812 kWh per year on average, or about 61% of the average household usage. That much electricity coming from clean, solar energy instead of coal means we eliminated 20,408 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions each year. Preventing this much carbon dioxide from being released to the atmosphere is equivalent to adding 5250 trees to our forests. Over a 25-year span, AEI expects this system will offset 122 tons of carbon dioxide.
