A popular grocery story in DC has started to run on sunshine. On October 8, 2015, Solar Energy World announced the completion of a 252.96 kw solar power system designed and installed for Giant Food. As of this month, store #0384 located at 1535 Alabama Avenue SE in Washington, DC went on-line. The photovoltaic electric system comprises 816 of 310 watt solar modules and 17 ABB 10K inverters that generate 304,696 kilowatt hours of the power needed to run the building.
“We’d like to thank Giant Food for this opportunity to be the selected solar contractor for their project. With the lower cost of the solar components, the federal tax credits and tax incentives available, we were able to provide them with significant savings.” – Tope Lala, Partner Solar Energy World
