Kirberg Company Introduces Solar Panel Energy Savings Meter
Kirberg Company, a commercial roofing company in St. Louis, introduces the Helios Monitor - a new monitor that allows businesses to dentify exactly how much energy they’re saving with their solar panels.
The Helios Monitor, which can be installed on any existing PV roof, works by measuring output directly from the PV roof’s solar inverter. It then converts that output into a visual display of instant kilowatts, as well as daily, weekly, monthly, and lifetime kilowatts produced. The Helios Monitor also coverts those numbers to report solar offset in equivalent terms of pounds of CO2, dozens of light bulbs, gallons of gas, barrels of oil, tree seedlings grown, pounds of coal saved, and pounds of waste recycled.
The environmental benefits achieved through the use of PV Panels, combined with the increased resale value of PV-Paneled buildings, and the ability to sell unused energy back to the utility company, offers reason enough for many businesses to take the PV-Panel-leap. Now, with the Helios Monitor, the financially minded have more measurable incentives, too.
“Installing Photovoltaic Panels is now much more than just creating a culture of environmental stewardship,”
To calculate their potential money savings each year, businesses need only multiply their yearly output of kilowatt hours (kWh) by the average value of electricity in their state ($.06 per kWh in Missouri). Kirberg Company’s Helios monitor makes that calculation easy, and it helps to make Photovoltaic Roofing even more appealing.
