SolarCraft Brings Solar to Altamont Apartments


The project consists of 509 SunTech 240-watt solar panels spanning 9,043 square feet of roof tops on multiple buildings. The total system is expected to generate approximately 189,760 kilowatt hours of energy annually, providing sustainable and price stable energy to the complex for years to come.

Each of the 509 solar modules is controlled by a micro-inverter, manufactured by Enphase Energy of Petaluma, CA.

Unlike more conventional solar electric systems, the micro-inverters greatly reduce impacts of shade from nearby trees or structures and generate about 7% more power than conventional inverters.

Overall system efficiency is increased by 10 - 12%.

The new solar energy system allows the Altamont Apartments to generate enough electricity each day to power over 53 average homes.

It will spare the air nearly 77 tons of harmful greenhouse gases annually. Over the next 30 years, the air pollution saved will be equivalent to eliminating over 5 million miles of driving.
