WASHINGTON, DC: Solar Energy Services, Inc. installed and commissioned a solar thermal system at Tiber Island, a waterfront condomimium community in Washington, DC.
SES was contracted by Skyline Innovations, a third party solar developer, to design and install the solar water heating system that acts as a pre-heat to the facility’s natural gas water heating system.
The solar system consists of 76 solar arrays mounted to the building’s roof. Each array has 30 evacuated tube collectors that are closed-loop plumbed to a 5,000 gallon solar storage tank.
The system is expected to offset a large portion of the facility’s conventional utility bill.
