The solar equipment, which meets Austin Energy program requirements, includes a 160.06 kW DC solar system associated with inverters rated at 95.5% efficiency. A total of 123 kW-AC in demand savings is expected. This energy improvement will save an estimated 195,590 kWh per year—enough to provide electricity to 17 average Austin homes for a year—and produce an estimated 196 Renewable Energy Credits per year. These savings are equivalent to the planting of 3,017 trees or 151 acres of forest in Austin’s parks or the removal of 263,691 vehicle miles or 23 cars from Austin roadways. This project will save 129 tons of Carbon Dioxide; 163 pounds of Sulfur Dioxide; 180 pounds of Nitrogen Oxide; and 125 pounds of Carbon Monoxide from being emitted into the atmosphere, and 152,980 gallons of water at the power plant.
