Kenyon Energy and Tri-City Electrical Contractors have completed a 1.1MW solar system installation for Darden Restaurants at their Restaurant Support Center in Orlando, FL. The largest private roof top solar array in Florida, the system will generate enough power to subsidize 15 to 20 percent of the RSC’s annual usage – the equivalent of taking the campus off the power grid for nearly two months.
The total system uses over 4,400 Solar World 250 watt panels with the majority of panels
(3,326) located above the 4 story parking garage on a custom steel canopy that incorporates live vertical panels on the south, east, and west facing fasciae. The balance of panels are located on the main building roof at a 15 degree tilt using a fully ballasted racking system.
