NSL’s solar power system was designed, engineered, and installed by Solar Power Industries.

Light control manufacturer Lutron Electronics is collaborating with ANSI to develop standards for the national Smart Grid effort. The standards are being developed by ASHRAE and NEMA, providing a common basis for electrical energy consumers to describe, manage, and communicate electrical energy consumption and forecasts. These will define an object-oriented information model to enable appliances and control systems in homes, buildings, and industrial facilities to manage electrical loads and generation sources in response to communication with a “smart” electrical grid.

Northern Sound & Light (NSL), a pro audio and lighting dealer in Pennsylvania, has invested in a new solar power system as part of a larger green strategy. NSL’s solar power system is comprised of 117 photovoltaic solar panels feeding three current inverters. The system is estimated to produce approximately 25,170 kW annual average, enough electricity that NSL will achieve energy positive status and be able to sell electricity back to the utility.
