Lighthouse was brought in to provide a turnkey price to incorporate solar onto this building. The solar modules are mounted to each parapet at a 30 degree angle facing due south for maximum solar energy capture. This system has fourteen individual inverters mounted behind the arrays.
The 112 solar modules collect energy and send it to the 14 inverters, which are in turn linked to the building’s power distribution system. The electricity is used immediately within the building or sold back to the electrical utility. In 2006, the set-up generated over 12,000 kilowatt-hours of energy and curbed the production of close to 17,000 pounds of carbon dioxide.
