Salt Lake City – The Associated General Contractors of Utah celebrated the installation of its new solar power array with an open house May 20 at its Salt Lake City headquarters on 2207 South 1070 West.
The $136,000 project was completed by Synergy Power Inc. of Midvale and funded through Rocky Mountain Power’s BlueSky program.
Chad Hofheins, principal owner for Synergy Power, said the system includes 134 mono-crystalline solar modules that produce 270 watts each for a total size of 36.18 kilowatts. Annual generation of this system is 55,900 kolowaat hours per year of AC power. The array also includes three 10 kilowatt inverters.
“On this project we went with these modules because we needed to get the highest wattage solar panel because of limited roof space,” said Hofheins.
Jeff Hymas, spokesperson for Rorcky Mountain Power, said that since 2006, BlueSky has helped fund construction for 104 community-based renewable energy projects, most for non-profit companies. The AGC project was one of 22 projects in Utah awarded during the 2013 funding cycle, which handed out $1.8 million.
