Falcon Heights Solar Design and Install

Applied Energy Innovations installed this 5.4 kW solar electric system in the Lowry Hill East neighborhood of Minneapolis in February, 2012. AEI installed 28 195-watt PV modules for a total system rating of 5,460 watts. We expect the system to produce over 6,634 kWh per year on average. That’s 95% of their household electricity use. Producing 6,634 kWh of electricity annually from coal emits about 13,898 pounds of carbon dioxide. Preventing this much carbon dioxide from being released to the atmosphere is equivalent to adding 3076 trees to our forests. Over a 25-year span, AEI expects this system will offset 172 tons of carbon dioxide.
