SOLAR ENERGY WORLD PARTICIPATES IN INNOVATIVE URBAN PROJECT

September 29, 2015 Solar Energy World CEO, Geoff Mirkin and Senior Solar Analyst, Jack Bolel were on hand to watch as DC Mayor Muriel Bowser cut the ribbon that officially opened 17 Solar, a state-of-the-art residential development project.

The 18 unique condominiums near the H Street corridor combine traditional community living with cutting-edge design. In addition to integrated highly proficient roof-mount solar panels provided and installed by Solar Energy World, the sleek modern homes have more insulation and glass facades than typical homes for improved energy-efficiency.

Andy Botticello, president of District Development Group (DDG), whose mission is to develop financially viable housing facilities that enrich the local community, says the project deliberately incorporated "modern materials including a lot of glass and the sloped roof to reflect the fact that the homes feature solar collectors oriented towards the south." The two-story condominiums each come with a full PV (photovoltaic) system designed to supply usable electric power by using the sun as the power source. "Depending on energy usage, they will provide approximately 20 percent to 30 percent of the energy used."

"We'd like to thank both DDG and the City of Washington DC for this opportunity to be the selected solar contactor in this important development. With the lower cost of the solar components, the federal tax credits and tax incentives available to DC residents, we were able to provide significant savings to the end user." - Geoff Mirkin, CEO Solar Energy World

US Battery - Solar RE L16XC Renewable Energy Battery

Our batteries have Xtreme thick plates with (XC Diamond Plate Technology) added to them. They have been designed for hours of heavy discharge each day, followed by a fast recharge during the daylight hours. Very few batteries can take the grueling deep discharge-recharge cycle every day for long periods of time. U.S. Battery has proven time and time again that our solar battery line can stand up to this type of battery torture day in and day out for years to come. When you demand reliable energy storage count on U.S. Battery every time!
