Empire Power Systems said it will install a commercial rooftop solar power system on an 850,000-square-foot building in Phoenix, Ariz. The 2.4 MW SunPower T5 Solar Roof Tile system chosen for this rooftop represents approximately 6.5 acres of solar panels. The installation is scheduled to begin immediately.
The solar installation will be facilitated, in part, from a production-based incentive provided by Arizona Public Service (APS). Through the Renewable Energy Incentive Program, APS offers incentives to customers who add renewable energy systems to their homes or business. The program is funded by APS customers and approved by the Arizona Corporation Commission.
