Our Electrical staff at Colvin Engineering recently completed the design for solar photovoltaic installations on seven Salt Lake City buildings. We found that the existing sloped roofs of fire stations along with their current rate schedules gave the fastest payback and the most reduction of energy and carbon emissions. Taking surrounding trees into consideration, we placed panels on east, south, and west facing roof slopes and have substantially reduced energy consumption, with one building predicted to reduce annual energy consumption by 83%.
