This customer lives in North Asheville and wanted to go solar for several reasons. He drives an electric car and loves clean energy technology. Going solar to power the house was the next logical step! The house itself has a fairly strong solar window with good ‘irradiance’, a way of estimating the power a solar system will produce. He chose Sundance Power Systems because of our deep experience, plus he knew several Sundance staff members.
This Asheville solar power system is 12.41 kilowatts and is powered by 34 Qcell 365 watt panels on the roof. (In 2019, Qcells opened the largest solar assembly facility of its kind in the Western Hemisphere. The 300,000 square foot factory located in Dalton, Georgia outputs approximately 1.7GW of solar modules each year, equivalent to the peak output of the Hoover Dam!) The solar panels are each paired with a SolarEdge optimizer and they are attached to the roof with Ironridge racking, our high-quality standard system for anchoring the system securely. A SolarEdge inverter takes the direct current (DC) power from the panels and converts it to alternating current (AC). This solar system is projected to offset about 86% of annual electric consumption.
The solar power system was installed over a couple of lovely autumn days in October 2022. Sundance Power Systems is proud to serve the Asheville metro area as well as upstate South Carolina. With powerful Federal tax credits that were increased and extended by the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, there has never been a better time to go solar. Sundance is 100% locally-owned with over 27 years of experience in designing, installing and servicing the systems we build. Get in touch for a free quote and take control of your energy future!
