Soenso Energy Installs Solar PV on Emory University Graduate Student Housing

A 2kW Solar PV Array Helps Supply Clean Electric Power
to Campus Crossings at Briarcliff

 


2kW Solar PV Array on Campus Crossings at Briarcliff
ATLANTA, GEORGIA – An array of ten Schuco Solar photovoltaic (PV) modules has been installed on the roof of Campus Crossings at Briarcliff in Atlanta, Georgia. This luxury, off-campus housing designed for Emory University graduate students is scheduled to open Fall 2009. Campus Crossings at Briarcliff will include energy saving technologies throughout. Upon completion, the property will obtain the residential EarthCraft™ designation.
The solar panels will help power the common areas of this residential complex. The 2kW solar PV system, supplied to Campus Crossings at Briarcliff by Soenso Energy of Marietta, Georgia, will generate an estimated average of 224kWh per month of clean electricity.

Coal accounts for approximately sixty-four percent of the fuel mix used by utilities in Georgia to generate electricity (Source: U. S. EPA). By partially powering Campus Crossings at Briarcliff with 224kWh per month of solar-generated electricity, this new photovoltaic system will have these positive effects on our environment:

 Prevent an estimated 4,225 pounds of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere
each year

 Is comparable to about 4.5 barrels of oil not imported for a year

 Is the equivalent to roughly .44 acre of pine forest storing carbon for a year
