Largest Solar Array in Atlanta History, Unveiled | Environment
Hannah Solar has completed the largest solar array on any office building in Atlanta's history. The Property Group’s ten-story Peachtree 25th Building located at 1720 Peachtree Street, the two companies have equipped the first multi-tenant building in the city with a solar plant.
The project is a joint venture that also includes the Georgia Environmental Finance Authority (GEFA), the U.S. Department of Energy, Georgia Power, the Public Service Commission and solar panel manufacturer, Schüco-USA.
A commissioning ceremony will be held on the roof of the building at noon on Tuesday, December 21st to coincide with the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year.
The solar array consists of 684 Schüco 225-watt solar modules, two ‘PV Power’ inverters and a custom engineered mounting system for securing the arrays to the roof. The system is considered a 150-kilowatt DC solar array and will have an output of 225,000 kilowatt hours of electricity per year, equivalent to the consumption of nearly 50 homes.
The Peachtree 25th Building is a 365,000-square foot office building and a notable Midtown landmark in the Brookwood section of Peachtree Street.
