Friends University's library begin running on solar power

KSAL StaffApril 10, 2016

http://bit.ly/1NdSTug) the university is installing a 29-panel, 9.5 kilowatt solar power array at the entrance of the Edmund Stanley Library. The $85,000 installation is part of a Westar Energy grant program to promote solar energy in Kansas. The direct current generated by the solar panels goes through an “inverter” and will be converted into regular alternating current, which will augment the power the university buys from Westar. The demonstration project is one of 15 in Kansas being supported by Westar, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. — Information from: The Wichita (Kan.)
