WCP Solar was contracted to design and construct a residential roof mounted solar system located in Park Ridge, 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 50% of the home electrical needs.
The project was sized at 4.50-kWp1, using 18 Canadian Solar photovoltaic panels rated at 250-W mounted on a 10 degree tilted roof. The system also employs 18 Enphase Microinverters to convert the DC energy produced by the solar System into AC energy. WCP Solar also installed a back up Generac Generator.
