WCP Solar was contracted to design and construct a residential roof mounted solar system located in Bolingbrook, 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 75% of the home electrical needs.
The project was sized at 7.20-kWp1, using 24 Canadian Solar photovoltaic panels rated at 300-W mounted on a 30 degree tilted roof. The system also employs 1 Sunny Boy 7000-US-Kw AC rated string inverter to convert the DC energy produced by the solar System into AC energy.
1 Estimated production of over 198 Tons of CO2 - Equivalent to Planting over 4664 trees or driving reduced by 396,000 auto miles, or 21,292 gallons of gasoline.
