A 200 kW solar power project, currently the largest in Texas, has been completed at the former Pearl Brewery redevelopment, according to project partners CPS Energy and Pearl.
The solar array, which was designed and installed by Meridian Solar, will generate about one-quarter of the building's total energy needs. During peak operating conditions, when the system produces more energy than the building requires, excess electrical power is sent to CPS Energy for other users.
The project at the Full Goods Building at Pearl includes an interactive display offering information about solar energy, with real-time updates on the amount of power produced and environmental equivalents in terms of pollutants avoided. Pearl solar display content is also available at http://pearl.kiosk-view.com.
