The Freedom House Recovery Center in Chapel Hill was recently donated a 5 kW solar system from NC WARN. NC WARN promotes solar power as a solid, affordable investments for most homes and businesses, and a key element of the much-needed statewide shift to protect the renewable energy economy. NC WARN has been donating rooftop systems and energy efficiency upgrades to a number of service organizations that use large amounts of hot water and electricity.
Freedom House Recovery Center is a non-profit that provides crisis and recovery services for substance addiction and mental illness. The installed solar project consists of 255 watt Suniva panels and a Sunny Boy inverter, and is projected to generate almost 7,000 kilowatt hours of electricity per year. The rooftop solar system, installed by Yes Solar Solutions, will help the non-profit reduce the overall cost of energy for Freedom House.
The Yes Solar Solutions installers worked in 95 degree heat, (which is much hotter on the roof) to finish the solar array for the ribbon cutting on August 2, 2017. Read more details in the News & Observer.
