Our Contribution to a Cleaner Planet
For the past few years, we have been performing dentistry using the power of the sun. High Noon Solar, a local solar power contractor, installed a 10 KW photovoltaic system on our rooftop a couple years ago and it is still going strong! The system consists of 44 solar panels which generate an average of 1,350 kilowatt-hours per month or about one third of our monthly power consumption.
The system has no moving parts and therefore, very little maintenance. The project is expected to payout in about 5 years and the panels should last 20 to 25 years. As Dr. Gillis noted, “It makes long term economic sense, but it also feels good knowing we’re generating a portion of our power rather than just consuming.”
So the next time your leaving the office, check out the SunPower monitor (shown above) by our front desk to see how much power is being captured from the sun.
