Wyoming Welcome Center
Creative Energies was hired to consult on the development of solar energy for this Wyoming State Welcome Center in Southeast Wyoming. The owners wanted this building, like the State of Wyoming, to produce more energy than it uses.
The Creative Energies Solution
This complex installation utilized five different roof surfaces and was carefully integrated with building function and aesthetics. The prominent south-facing roof has a single plane of 25 kW of solar modules stretching from eave to eave to create a uniform and striking visual image while maximizing energy production in the space available. Creative Energies also installed the vertical geothermal loop field comprised of sixteen wellbores of 275 feet depth.
- 50 kW commercial grid-tied PV with 216 Sunpower 230Watt modules
- Eight SMA inverters
- Produces approximately 60,000kWh per year
- Saves approximately 95,000 lbs of coal per year
