Making Power

Installation of KTWR's 30KW solar power system has been completed. It turned out to be a tough thing to do during rainy season. It is also not so easy to get full power output during the monsoon that we had just experienced. However, this photo shows the inverter pumping over 22KW into the power lines at the station. That is ~3 times the power that we consume at home when a water heater and two air conditioners are running.

We are already in the planning stages of expanding this system with an additional 37.5-67.5KW system. That would be plenty of power to make our power meter "spin backwards" during the day. This will cause KTWR to accumulate credits that can be used to reduce the power costs of our nightly broadcasts. Reduced costs will expand our ministry opportunities.
