The ability to cost effectively generate surplus energy on site is a game changer like when we lit the first logs.
Not exactly known for sunshine, New England added roughly 3,800 megawatts of small-scale solar installations from 2016 through May 2022. That tiny change reduced peak daily demand from regional grids by 1,000 megawatts during morning and evening peaks, and by 2,000 megawatts during main daylight hours.
Soaring power production from households and businesses with rooftop solar panels has sent records tumbling across Australia, with output from fossil fuels falling to all-time lows. The generation from rooftop solar caused demand for electricity from the grid to fall to record lows.
The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden first opened in 1875, making it the second oldest zoo in the country. The 28 MW solar array will be erected at the zoo’s Bowyer Farm and will move the Zoo from net zero to net positive.
