Solar Panel Design -

RO was contracted to perform the Solar Electric Design and study of the capacity of the roof system and provide a structural report for the design and installation of a solar panel system. The construction portion of this project was successfully completed in March 2012 without any design issues or change orders.

System installed is a 1137.045 kWroof mounted DC photovoltaic (PV) system using LG modules and a PV powered inverter and has an estimated first year production of approximately 1449378 kWh of energy, which is equivalent to the avoided emissions of 2,203,359 lbs. of CO₂. This is comparable to taking 196 cars off of the road or conserving 112,043 gallons of gasoline annually (EPA data).
