I recently compared my electric usage in April 2016 to a year ago. It proved that solar energy installations really do work in Kentucky. Our usage from LG&E a year ago was 36.7 kilowatt-hours per day, today its only 3.5 kilowatt-hours per day. This 90 percent reduction is due to the addition of our investment in a 5.4 kW solar system, which keeps our hard-earned money in our pockets for the next 25 years.
The Kentucky Solar Energy Society will hold its annual membership meeting and board elections on Saturday, May 14, from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the University of Louisville’s Ernst Hall Auditorium at 216 Eastern Parkway.
The meeting is free and open to the public. We will have a presentation from professor Thad Druffel on the state of solar generation in Kentucky. Other presentations will cover solar legislation in Frankfort, the October 2016 Solar Tour and the Solar Over Louisville initiative.
We will also offer a tour of the U of L’s Solar Decathlon House, as well as a discussion to better understand solar-powered electric-generating systems. Learn about the incentives for home and business owners.
