LOMBARD GOES SOLAR

Lombard goes solar

WCP Solar was contracted to design and construct a residential roof mounted solar system located in Lombard, 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 84% of the home electrical needs.

The project was sized at 10.00-kWp1, using 125 CdTe Thin Film frameless photovoltaic panels rated at 80-W mounted on a 30 degree tilted roof. The system employs a 10250-kW DC rated Solaredge Inverter with P405 Solaredge power optimizers to convert the DC energy produced by the solar System into AC energy.


1 Estimated production of over 300 Tons of CO2 - Equivalent to Planting over 7600 trees or driving reduced by 660,000 auto miles, or 33,000 gallons of gasoline.
