photovoltaic electricity

At Planet Traveler, a portion of our electricity comes from the building’s impressive 4.7kW photovoltaic array, which also doubles as a shade awning over the rooftop bar.

We’ve kept our energy needs low by using LED lighting building-wide, so lighting the entire building only takes 1,500W – that’s less energy than it takes to run a hairdryer or a 4-slice toaster. And when we produce more electricity than we consume, we move that power out to the grid.
