Novato School Sees the Light
Novato-based SolarCraft announced it has completed the design and installation of a 16.6 kW solar electric system at Miss Sandie’s School in Novato.
The newly installed solar electric systems utilizes (84) Sharp 198 watt solar panels. The solar electric system is expected to generate 23,949 kilowatt hours annually, and spans over 1,338 square feet.
“SolarCraft recently installed a photovoltaic system at my preschool. The entire process was so smooth. The system has eliminated our electric bill and the kids love the fact that their school is powered by the sun,” said Kent Grady, owner of Miss Sandie’s. “SolarCraft was very accommodating and worked around our school schedule to avoid any inconvenience to my staff and students. They handled every detail from permits to filing for rebates. Every person from SolarCraft was fantastic; there is no question that I would use them again.”
Miss Sandie’s solar electric system will enable them to generate enough clean electricity each day to power 7 average homes. The new system will spare the air nearly 12 tons of harmful greenhouse gases annually, equivalent to the air filtering of 3 acres of trees. Over the next 30 years, the air pollution saved will be comparable to driving over 852,000 miles. A sound investment, the system will pay for itself in approximately 6 years.
