Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park (KMNBP)
Near Atlanta, Georgia, USA
Rooftop Solar System
The historic battleground near Atlanta, Georgia has become a landmark in America’s move towards renewable energy.
AEG PS engineered, designed and installed a solar energy system, LED lamps and a new roof with more insulating material to generate renewable energy and increase energy efficiency. In all, the photovoltaic (PV) system is expected to generate more than 67,000 kW-hr per year of energy and the LED lamps and roof with improved insulation will reduce overall power consumption throughout the facility.
The entire rooftop solar system on the Kennesaw Visitor Center consists of 288 modules from Georgia-based manufacturer Suniva. In order to account for the visitor center roof’s differing height and pitch throughout the surface area, AEG PS designed the PV panel placement to maximize long-term sun exposure and minimize shading effects.
