Long Description:
Forty-six solar panels provides the Sugar Creek Administrative Building 14,000 - 16,500 kilowatt hours of electricity per year. That is the equivalent power used by 2 average-sized homes annually. But for this office building, it supplements only 20 percent of the power needed for this facility.

Something is better than nothing, though... Plus it also demonstrates how much energy is required to power a modern office building.
Type of system: Photovoltaic (electrical)
