In June 2013 Autonomous Energy installed a 30kW solar power system at Bowen Library.

The system comprises of 139 x 215W polycrystalline PV solar modules manufactured by Kyocera. The array is mounted on an engineered, solar specific balast mounting system and is connected to SMA inverters via premium quality (USE2 rated) DC solar cabling. The inverters connect to the electricity network via a digital bi-directional meter which enables Bowen Library to use the solar electricity in the library first and export any excess energy produced to the electricity network.

A solar data monitoring system has also been installed at the library to log and display various inputs and outputs from the inverters. This information is displayed on this dedicated web portal.
