Executive Summary
Electric Utility Savings: For the first year alone anticipate a savings of approximately $10,173 in electric bills (30%) at current utility
rates. Savings will grow as electric utility rates are expected to rise 3.90% a year. The purchase of electric energy (kWh) from your
utility is expected to be reduced by 30%.
Over 25 years, annual utility savings are anticipated to average $16,528, for a total utility savings of $413,189.

Performance Summary
Solar Electric (PV) System: 62 kW DC (59.83 kW AC) producing 101,732 kWh/Year.

Carbon Footprint
Your carbon footprint will be reduced. Over the life of your system 2,086 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) will be eliminated from your
footprint. Equivalent to:

Planting 48,604 trees.

Driving reduced by 4,172,000 auto miles, or 212,772
gallons of gasoline.

Recycling 6,592 tons of waste instead of sending it
to landfill.

Displacing CO2 emissions from the annual electric
use of 237 homes.

2,032,643 pounds (1,016.3 tons) of coal burned.

and you will help avoid the use of up to
50,866,000 gallons of water by Thermoelectric
Powerplants.
