Largest roof-mounted solar array completed in US
The largest roof-mounted solar array in the United States has finally reached completion. Put together by Avidan Management, the system compromises of 17,745 high-performance SolarWorld solar panels and boasts a capacity of 4.26-megawatt. With this, Avidan Management will now be up front in clean renewable energy usage in the industrial real estate industry. The array set up on the roof of a company-owned distribution facility in Edison will generate more than 5 kilowatt hours of power on an annual basis and covers nearly 17-acres of roof space of the 656,255-square-foot facility.
Using this massive solar array, the facility will reduce about 3,750 tons of Co2 emissions on an annual basis, the same as planting 3.5 million trees!
