Sun powering storage units

Tillery Self-Storage is boasting Knoxville's largest commercial solar installation to date.

The seven solar arrays with 18 panels were pole mounted to generate 27,562 kilowatt hours of electricity annually.

Owner Ray Lahti was able to procure about 70 percent of the system's cost through federal and state grants, said David Bolt, founder of Sustainable Future, the system's installer.

Coupled with incentives under TVA's Generation Partners Program the business should see a return on investment in five to seven years, Bolt said.
