The Sustainable Power Group, a Salt Lake City-based company involved in the development of alternative-energy systems, said it has installed solar-power generation systems on the rooftops of the Natural History Museum of Utah and the HPER East building at the University of Utah.
It said the museum's system is capable of generating 330-kilowatt hours, while the HPER East complex is a 263-kilowatt system. Together they will generate enough energy to power roughly 280 homes.
Combined, the two arrays consist of 2,470 photovoltaic panels covering 40,000 square feet of rooftop. The panels were manufactured in Memphis, Tenn.
