Fayetteville Public Library hosts public presentation on Solar Test Bed Project

Want to learn more about the 60 solar panels that were installed on the roof of the Fayetteville Public Library?

On Tuesday, Aug. 24, the library will host a public presentation about the newly-installed solar panels, providing more info to the public about the grant process, the challenges faced, and the opportunities presented during the installation process. Those in attendance will also have an opportunity to get a look at the finished product.

The presentation begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Walker Community Room at the library, and is free and open to the public.

The panels, which were funded with a $60,000 grant from the International City/Council Management Association, have been producing electrical power to help offset the library’s energy costs.

You can check out the kiosk in the lobby that displays real-time energy production data from the solar array. For example, as of 2:34 p.m. Thursday, the solar panels had generated 51.6 kilowatt-hours, and over 3,600 since the installation in June.
