Naperville Goes Solar

WCP Solar was contracted to design and construct a residential roof mounted solar system located in Naperville, 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 70% of the home electrical needs.

Naperville Goes SolarThe project was sized at 5.00-kWp1, using 20 LG black monocrystalline solar photovoltaic panels rated at 250-W mounted on a 28 degree tilted roof. The system also employs 1 Solectra PVI 5300 AC rated string inverter to convert the DC energy produced by the solar System into AC energy.

1 Estimated production of over 92 Tons of CO2 - Equivalent to Planting over 2340 trees or driving reduced by 189,000 auto miles, or 11,400 gallons of gasoline.
