SolarCity Inaugurates PV Installation At Affordable Housing Complex


SolarCity, William C. Smith + Co. – a real estate development and management firm – and the D.C. Housing Authority have completed a 429-module, 103 kW solar power installation on a new affordable housing complex within Sheridan Station, a redevelopment project in Washington, D.C.'s reemerging Ward 8 community.

The solar installation is expected to produce enough power to offset roughly 30% of electricity usage in the five-story, 114-unit apartment building's common areas, thereby defraying about one-third of that portion of the building's annual electricity costs. The Sheridan Station solar project is the largest solar power system installed to date on a D.C. Housing Authority development, according to SolarCity.

William C. Smith + Co. has applied for LEED Platinum status with the U.S. Green Building Council.
