Annual CO2 Offset in Pounds

A solar array containing 2,106 photo-voltaic solar panels covering over 54,000 square feet has been placed across a new white roof. The system’s power from these solar panels will be sold to Pepco customers in the area to offset their home’s energy use with clean, renewable, solar energy. The 842.4 kW system is expected to produce 1,164 Megawatt-Hours of clean energy (1,164,000 kWh), equal to the annual electric consumption for 150 homes resulting in an offset of 1,818,501 pounds of CO2 each year.

The roof was also retrofitted, and replaced with a white roof, allowing for higher reliability and cooler indoor temperatures at the property in the summer.  Cooler indoor temperatures will also lead to lower energy use by the HVAC systems.
