With plans for the business to remain in the family, Bob Peel, owner of Bold LLC, wanted an investment that would continue to benefit future generations of the Peel Family. Bob saw the value of locking in the cost of his electricity for the long term and creating a revenue stream on his large flat roof.
One of the largest privately owned solar arrays in Kansas is comprised of 768 Winaico 260W solar modules each sitting in its own Renusol racking tray at a 15 degree tilt angle. The system employs 4 Fronius CL 44.4 Delta inverters and will be capable of producing 200 kilowatts(kW) of electrical power and will generate about 260,000 kilowatt-hours (kWhs) of usable electricity per year, which is equivalent to that needed to run 25 average homes. We estimate that this array saves the company around $27,000 a year on electricity costs.
The system will also help shade the roof of the warehouse from the hot Hutchinson sunshine during the summer, effectively lowering his space conditioning loads.
“In hindsight we should have looked at this ten years ago…(the) pay off is not long term, so that is a false assumption…The government will pay 30% of the total cost, we also can take accelerated depreciation over 5 years, so we believe the payback of the system is about 6 years.”
Size of System: 199.68kW
Installation Type: Roof Mount
Number of Panels: 768
Estmated Annual Output: 260,000kWh
