Five families participating in Habitat for Humanity's new homeowner program will be moving into solar-powered homes this year as a result of an industry partnership coordinated by American Solar Electric. The solar electric systems are being donated by American Solar Electric to Habitat for Humanity as part of the company's 2009 community outreach program.
The systems range in size from 2.73 kW to 3.15 kW and include Kyocera's high output 210 W PV modules and high-efficiency Fronius IG and IG+ inverters. The systems are expected to produce between 4,700 kWh and 5,500 kWh of electricity in their first year of production.
