By: PPC Solar
This rooftop system will be the first solar installation on a radio station in the Colorado Springs. This system consists of 8 Schott 245watt Polycrystalline modules and a Fronius 2000 watt inverter, and is mounted to the roof with Unirac racking. It is estimated that this system will yield 3,191 kilowatt hours annually, and is projected to produce 10-% of building electricity usage.
“We're proud to partner with Radio KRCC to support their environmental stewardship,"
“KRCC is very excited to enter a new era with the installation of solar panels on our building,” said Delaney Utterback, KRCC Station Manager. “KRCC’s efforts mirror those of our parent organization, Colorado College. We, too, are striving to reduce our carbon footprint. Having less impact on natural resources is a value our listeners support and our solar panels are a crucial first step in KRCC's strategic goal for all around sustainability.”
