WCP Solar was contracted to design and construct a residential roof mounted solar system located in Aurora, Illinois. This grid connected system ties directly into the Commonwealth Edison Utility’s (ComEd) power grid and generates enough electricity to provide power to more than 90% of the home electrical needs.
The project was sized at 5.76-kWp1, using 72 CdTe Thin Film frameless photovoltaic panels rated at 80-W mounted on a 33 degree tilted roof. The system also employs 1 Solectra 6600TL Kw AC rated string inverter to convert the DC energy produced by the solar System into AC energy.
1 Estimated production of over 165 Tons of CO2 - Equivalent to Planting over 3845 trees or driving reduced by 330,000 auto miles, or 16,830 gallons of gasoline.
