Johnson Melloh Solutions has completed a 4.14kW solar array installation at Staughton Senior Apartments in Indianapolis, Indiana. Mounted on a single story residential style building with an asphalt shingle roof, the Solar PV array consists of 18 Bosch 230watt mono-crystalline panels with Enphase M215 micro-inverters. By going with micro-inverters, the Owner will be able to have one of the most efficient solar arrays possible as well as an industry leading online data monitoring solution.
During this installation, a group of 25-30 students, teachers, and community leaders from nearby Arlington High School came over for a guided tour and lesson on solar technology from the Johnson Melloh Solutions Project Manager. The group of students were from a math and science class that focuses on technology such as this and its real world application. The JMS Project Manager gave a half-hour tour and lesson on solar technology and this particular installation, and then opened it up for what turned out to be an excellent question and answer session. Other topics discussed with the students included the future of solar technology, energy efficiency, battery technology, and career opportunities in the green energy industry.
