WCP Solar was contracted by Tecta Solar a nationwide Solar Developer to construct a roof mounted solar system on a building hosting a Senior Citizen Housing Firm, located in Batavia, Illinois. This grid connected system ties directly into the Commonwealth Edison Utility’s (ComEd) power grid and generates enough electricity to provide a substantial amount of power of the electrical needs of the facility.
The project was sized at 57.95-kWp1, using 190 Canadian Solar CS6X photovoltaic panels rated at 305-W mounted on a 10 degree tilt on a flat roof. The system also employs 2 string inverters, each rated at 23-kW, to convert the DC energy produced by the solar plant into AC energy.
In addition to providing significant energy savings, the solar system will produce approximately 87 Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SREC's).
WCP Solar construction management team oversaw all phases of the construction process, including the day to day operations, site monitoring, quality assurance and control, and scheduling. Installation was completed in 2 weeks.
Completed on August 7th 2015, this project was another example of strong project management and leadership by the WCP Solar team.
