From KXAS-TV (El Paso):
Texas’ West Irving Library is going green, operating completely on solar power.
Casey Tate, Irving Capital Improvement Program director, said the city received a $1.1 million grant from the Department of Energy to build the library.
The grant funded two-thirds of the total cost for the solar panel system.
“In the past year, we are net zero,” Tate said. “I think we put a total of about 28,000 kilowatt hours back onto the grid, so we are to the positive. We generated more power than we used.”
