DC Apartment Building Installs Solar

WASHINGTON, DC:  Skyline Innovations, a third party solar developer, engaged Solar Energy Services, Inc. to design and install a solar water heating system on an apartment building on MacArthur Blvd. in downtown Washington, DC.

The solar thermal system will include 20 thermal panels on the south facing roof of the building, as well as a 1,000 gallon solar storage tank.  The system will act as a pre-heat to the building’s existing gas water heater, reducing their utility costs by around 30% annually.

DC Apartments Go Solar Thermal

WASHINGTON, DC:  The installation of a solar water heating system was completed today at an apartment building on Tunlaw Road in downtown Washington, DC.

The solar thermal system was designed and installed by Solar Energy Services, Inc., a Maryland- based solar installer, in partnership with Skyline Innovations, a DC-based third party solar developer.

The system includes 58 flat plate solar thermal collectors, a 3,200 gallon solar storage tank, and a 200 gallon buffer tank.  It is expected to greatly offset the building’s natural gas water heating system.
