The Robertson Lodge at Hartwick's Pine Lake Environmental Campus boasts a 10-kW photovoltaic system which provides on average about half of the building's electricity over the course of a year.
It is a net metering system, which means that when the PV system produces more electricity than the Lodge is currently consuming, the excess electricity is fed back into the grid and we receive a credit on our electrical bill.
The Lodge's PV system was supported by an incentive from NYSERDA, and installed by ETM Solar Works, a NYSERDA-certified installed based in Endicott, New York.
The Lodge PV system was featured in a NYSERDA Success Stories case study, which can be downloaded here. (To download the application form, you must have Adobe Reader.)
