The capital city of Nebraska, Lincoln has witnessed an upsurge of solar energy installations with a growing number of people and businesses looking out for options to power their buildings.
Lincoln Electric System has been examining 125-customer owned solar systems used by businesses and homes around the city.
Further sources suggest, the roof on the expected medical practice off 70th and South Street will be comprised of 80 panels. It will be the largest private PV panel to be put on roof and can also be connected to the LES system.
The building will principally run on solar energy. When the building is consuming more energy than its consumption it will send the energy back into the grind. The panels were installed by SWT Energy. According to the SWT Energy, their businesses have experienced notable growth year after year, the tax incentives however have been a big push recently.
Although SWT Energy has undertaken a massive project with the recently installed 80 panels, the company said it will take about seven to 10 years to obtain return on investment.
Lincoln Electric System further alleged the solar energy use in Lincoln did not restrict to larger coastal cities but were using it more than other Midwest cities.
Sources further state LES has a program which “allows customers to receive the energy credit on their bill every month through our solar farm out in west Lincoln.”
