Keller Associates designed a 2.5 kW photovoltaic system for the City of Lava Hot Springs. The project was largely funded by a renewable energy grant.  The system, located at the municipal fire station, was designed to reduce electric bills, promote a community awareness of the environment, and provide an educational resource to the area.

The two high-efficiency solar modules generate an estimated 2,920 kilowatt-hours of electricity per year. Additionally, the bi-directional meter allows the City to sell any excess power back to the utility company through a net metering agreement.

Total Project Cost: $38,000

Project Highlights:

  • Payback period: 20 Years
  • Estimated Power Production: 2,920 kilowatt-hours (annually)
  • First Blue Sky Power Project in Idaho
