Kress Pavilion solar array in the works

Next year, as much as 20% of the electricity used at the Kress Pavilion in Egg Harbor will originate from a solar array set for spring installation. Administrator Ryan Heise says the project dates back to the building's construction. A conduit already exists on the property that ties into the Egg Harbor's electrical grid. The pole-mounted solar array system will be located in a nearby field, not attached to the Kress Pavilion itself. State and federal grants are expected to help make the project profitable immediately. Heise says savings will allow the solar panels to pay for themselves in a little over ten years.

 


By comparison, the system's useful life is estimated at 25 years, and the warranty will last twenty. Egg Harbor will be putting the project out for bid in the coming weeks. The village looked at a similar installation near the wastewater treatment plant but abandoned it when analysis showed it was not cost-effective.
