South Barrington Goes SolarThe project was sized at 12.48-kWp1, using 156 CdTe Thin Film frameless photovoltaic panels rated at 80-W mounted on a 37 degree tilted roof. The system also employs 39 power optimizers and 1 11.00Kw AC rated string inverters to convert the DC energy produced by the solar System into AC energy.
