WCP Solar was contracted to design and construct a residential roof mounted solar system located in Carpentersville, 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 95% of the home electrical needs.
The project was sized at 6.00-kWp1, using 20 Canadian Solar photovoltaic panels rated at 300-W mounted on a 30 degree slope on tilted roof. The system also employs 20 Enphase Micro- Inverters 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 4813 trees or driving reduced by 396,000 auto miles, or 20,198 gallons of gasoline.
