Solar covered carport at Visitor's Center


In case youíve been wondering whatís on the roof of the carport at the Silver City Visitorís Center parking lot on Hudson St., itís an array of photovoltaic panels which convert sunlight to electricity. The 7.6 kilowatt set of panels on the roof are connected to the Visitor Centerís electrical meter and are reducing the Townís reliance on non-renewable energy from the electrical grid. To maximize local and regional benefit, it was built primarily with local labor, and the 32 photovoltaic panels were manufactured in Albuquerque by Schott Solar.

To increase awareness of the benefits of solar energy, an educational kiosk and display monitor has been installed at the Office of Sustainability, 1106 N. Pope St. Visitors are able to see how much energy the solar array is producing in real time, how much it has produced over time (total production), tons of CO2 emissions avoided by not burning fuel in a conventional power plant, and the equivalent number of trees planted necessary to absorb the CO2 produced from a fossil fuel burning power plant.
