Webster, WI, November 22, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- A new solar development project by Carlson Electric is estimated to offset over 50 percent of future electric bills for the Humane Society of Burnett County (HSBC).
The project includes an installation of a renewable energy ground mounted solar system, which will be 19.72 kW in size and will produce roughly 25,827 kWh per year. This solar energy system is expected to save the HSBC an average of $5,600 annually.
The Humane Society, which is set to open at their new location in Webster, WI, early next year, is thrilled to be switching to renewable energies.
Peggy Tolbert of HSBC stated, “The Humane Society of Burnett County is excited to partner with Carlson Electric, Legacy Solar Coop, Polk Burnett Electric Cooperative and Renew Wisconsin on a solar energy project which will be located at the new Peggy Schilling Animal Adoption and Education Center, 7410 County Road D, Webster, WI. Thanks to this partnership, HSBC is able to demonstrate our commitment to sustainable energy and its many benefits.”
HSBC was granted just over $8,000 toward this project by Renew Wisconsin through the Legacy Solar Cooperative, a co-op started to further along the embrace of solar energy adoption in the state of Wisconsin for everyone with a focus on community-centered solar projects.
Tim Dilley of Carlson Electric is excited to help pave the way and inspire others to move toward using solar energy in future projects, as well. Dilley stated, “The energy produced by the solar system for HSBC will reduce their carbon footprint significantly, eliminating 635 tons of Carbon Dioxide from the environment - the equivalent of planting 14,796 trees.”
Carlson Electric is an electrical contractor and top rated solar installer serving all of northwest WI and the surrounding market areas.
