Standard Solar, a leading solar energy company specializing in the development and financing of solar electric systems nationwide, installed a 47.9-kW solar array on the roof of the Alice Ferguson Foundation’s (AFF) new education building, one of the greenest most energy efficient structures in the world. The building is designed to meet the net-zero water, net-zero energy, zero-waste and carbon-neutral requirements of the Living Building Challenge.

The 174-module array, which will produce 63,509 kWh a year, will help AFF reach its energy goals for the building. “Thanks to the array installed by Standard Solar, we are able to generate our own electricity and export any excess power to the grid,” said Lori Arguelles, Executive Director at the Alice Ferguson Foundation. “We are pleased to partner with a local company like Standard Solar as we work together to change the future of energy design and usage in buildings.”
