Tellus Northwest Georgia Science Museum 10kW Solar PV
ATLANTA, GEORGIA – A total of sixty Evergreen Solar photovoltaic (PV) modules have been installed on five towers in a courtyard outside the new Tellus Northwest Georgia Science Museum in Cartersville, Georgia. This solar PV array, supplied by Soenso Energy of Marietta, Georgia, is a 10kW system that produces about 1120kWh/month of clean electricity. This is enough electricity to offset the power used to operate the museum’s planetarium projector.
In Georgia, coal accounts for approximately sixty-four percent of the fuel mix used by utilities to generate electricity (Source: U. S. EPA). By partially powering the new Tellus Museum with 1120kWh per month of clean, solar-generated electricity, this new photovoltaic system will have these positive effects on our environment:
• Prevent an estimated 21,309 pounds of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere
• Is comparable to about 22.5 barrels of oil not imported each year
• Is the equivalent to roughly 2.2 acres of pine forest storing carbon each year
Located just off I-75, Exit 293, Cartersville, Bartow County, Georgia, Tellus Northwest Georgia Science Museum is only forty-five miles northwest of downtown Atlanta. The 120,000 square foot museum features The Weinman Mineral Gallery, The Fossil Gallery, Science in Motion, The Collins Family My Big Backyard and a 120-seat planetarium with a state-of-the-art 20-inch telescope.
