WCP Solar was contracted to design and construct a ground and rooftop mounted solar system for the City of Plano Water Reclamation Facility in Plano, Illinois. This ComEd grid-connected Distributed Generation system will generate 78% of the facility's electrical needs. This project is sized at 1230 kW and uses 3,367 JA Solar JAM72S01-365/PR monocrystalline panels for the ground and rooftop mounted solar system. The system also employs 13 Solectria PVI 60TL and 2 PVI 36-TL string inverters appropriately sized to convert the DC energy produced by the solar plant into AC energy.
In addition to providing significant energy savings, the solar system will produce approximately 1,600 Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SREC's) annually. WCP Solar will maintain and service the solar plant for 25 years. The WCP Solar construction management team oversaw all phases of the construction process, including day-to-day operations, weekly subcontracting, owner meetings, site monitoring, quality assurance, and scheduling.
The Plano Project by WCP Solar will be the largest ground and rooftop mounted system in The City of Plano, Illinois.
