Current status

Live data updates as of

Kilowatt (kW):

A measure of electrical power equivalent to 1.34 horsepower or 1,000 watts. As an example, a typical toaster requires 800-1,400 watts to operate.

Kilowatt-hours (kWh) since July 2019:

A measure of electrical energy equivalent to 1.34 horsepower or 1,000 watts over a period of one hour. As an example, a 100-watt lightbulb operating for 10 hours would use one kilowatt-hour.

Plane of Array Irradiance (POAI):

A measure of the intensity of sunlight at the angle of the solar array in watts per square meter.

Global Horizontal Irradiance (GHI):

A measure of the intensity of sunlight shining on a level surface in watts per square meter.

Did you know?

Nearly 2,700 solar panels

have been installed at our solar array. The panels are in a fixed position, tilted at the ideal angle, to maximize the amount of energy produced.

35 acres

make up the site of our Solar Share facility. Each section of panels takes up roughly 3 acres.

840 kilowatts of AC power

can be produced by the first section of inverters when at maximum capacity. The panels can produce 500 kilowatts of DC power.

10 AM – 3 PM

are the best hours to produce the most solar energy in Kentucky

June is the sunniest

month to produce solar energy in Kentucky where our solar facility is located.

1,400 megawatt-hours

of energy can be produced annually during normal weather conditions.

116 homes

This number compares the amount of energy being produced by the facility to the equivalent number of typical residential homes it could support.
