Solar Electricity Powers Farm

Solar Power for Farm

Northern Lights Energy has installed a solar electric system to power a small farm in Russell, NY. Thirteen 265W Solarworld solar electric panels coupled with a Solar Edge inverter now provide 100% of the electricity used in this St. Lawrence County farm. Because he makes hot water with an electric water heater, he now has solar hot water too. Data logging is included so that the owner and Northern Lights Energy can monitor what the system is doing in real time.

The owner, Bryan Given, said of his experience, "Northern Lights Energy, Scott and his crew, have done a wonderful job on my solar project. I am looking forward to many years as a solar powered residence. Its been a great experience working with Scott and his crew."
