Solar USA has partnered with The City of Plano to design and construct a ground & rooftop mounted solar system for their Water Reclamation Facility, located in Plano, Illinois. This ComEd grid connected Distributed Generation system will generate enough electricity to provide power to more than 78% of the facility electrical needs.

This project is sized at 1228.95-kWp1, using 3,367 JASolar JAM72S01-365/PR Monocrystalline panels rated at 365-W for the ground and rooftop mounted solar system. The system 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.

Solar USA in a partnership with the City of Plano forged a 25-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)providing an average annual energy savings of $30,000, in addition the solar system will produce approximately 1,600 Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SREC's) annually.

Solar USA managed all phases of the construction process, including the day-to-day operations, weekly subcontractor, and Owner meetings, site monitoring, quality assurance and control, and scheduling with a 25 Year maintenance agreement.

The Solar System is the largest ground and rooftop mounted system in The City of Plano, Illinois completed in December 2018.
