Pro-Tech Energy Solutions designed and installed a 568.36 kW roof mounted solar array at Monmouth University. The array was constructed on seven different school facilities, including the newly constructed athletic center and several dormitories.
During the design process, the potential capacity of the solar array was maximized by creatively avoiding roof obstructions. Pro-Tech accomplished this by identifying shading patterns and selecting high efficiency equipment to minimize any lost production. In addition, Pro-Tech utilized a judicious approach to identify which trees would be trimmed or removed to retain the historical aesthetic of the old growth trees. Pro-Tech managed the entire construction project during the university’s spring session without any interruption on campus.
