Renewable energy or “green power” is defined as energy that consists of electricity provided from solar, wind, small hydro, landfill methane, animal waste methane, agricultural waste and/or other biomass resources. Contributions to NC GreenPower have made projects like these possible. The installation of the renewable energy system was funded by the project owner.
This generator project is grid-tied and interconnected with their electric utility. The utility compensates the producer for the electricity generated to the grid, and NC GreenPower provides additional incentives for the green attributes (or RECs) for each kilowatt hour added to the grid.
The Monroe Family is making an attempt at reducing our "carbon footprint" while minimizing heating and cooling cost. Upon building our new home in Wake Forest, NC we decided to install a small solar system on our home. The results have been wonderful. We hope to expand our system in the future!
