Kelly is the electrical engineer at REA and Brian is the Manager of Energy Services. The panels produce more energy sometimes in March rather than summertime. It if overproduces it comes back to the system and they get revenue back. The building itself is 30 ft by 50 ft. The life extectancy for one panel alone is 25 years Such an informative and educational program.
