WCP Solar was contracted to design and construct a residential roof mounted solar system located in Spring Grove, 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 81% of the home electrical needs.
The project was sized at 10.8-kWp1, using 36 Canadian Solar photovoltaic panels rated at 300-W mounted on a 20 degree tilted roof. The system also employs 36 Enphase M215- Microinverters to convert the DC energy produced by the solar System into AC energy. WCP Solar also installed a back up Generac Generator.
1 Estimated production of over 301 Tons of CO2 - Equivalent to Planting over 7013 trees or driving reduced by 602,000 auto miles, or 30,702 gallons of gasoline.
