St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) March 13, 2013
On March 11, 2013, Lafser & Associates, Inc. completed a 24 kilowatt (kW) photovoltaic (PV) system for Sheila Burkett’s, Tuxedo Park Leasing, LLC at the historic 2710 Lafayette Avenue property in St. Louis, Missouri. The system consists of 96, 250 watt panels that will produce an estimated 29,589 kilo-watt hour (kWh) per year. This production will offset the facility’s energy consumption by roughly 53%. This translates into energy savings of over $98,000 for the 25 year lifetime of the system. Most commercial solar energy systems pay for themselves within one and a half to two years due to the available tax credits and rebates from utility companies and the federal government. Renewable solar energy reduces emissions by not consuming energy off the grid and is a price hedge against rising energy costs. Recent legislation has given consumers until the end of 2016 to take advantage of the 30% federal tax credit on solar energy systems.
