Title: Solar Total Energy Project Shenandoah, Georgia

Solar Total Energy Project Shenandoah, Georgia The Solar Total Energy Project (STEP) at Shenandoah, Georgia is the world's largest industrial application of solar cogeneration. It is a cooperative effort between the U. S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Georgia Power Company to further America's search for alternative sources of energy. It is an outgrowth of research started in 1972 by Sandia National Laboratories for the U. S. Energy Research and Development Administration. The objective of the Shenandoah project is to evaluate a solar total energy system that provides electrical power, process steam, and air conditioning for a knitwear factory operated by Bleyle of America, Inc. Solar energy will displace a large part of the electricity and fossil fuels normally used to run the factory and produce the clothing.
