The system includes 42 4x8 panels totaling 1,344 square feet of collector area. The system was designed to provide 100% of the summer load for the building, which at the time had 1,200 employees and hot water usage of 2,400 gallons per day. Annually, the solar system produces an estimated 2,688 therms, or about 68,976 kWh, which in turn provides approximately 50% to 60% of the hot water needs for the building. We Energies monitors the system with two different units. Data is available online at the links below.
