Washington Gas Energy Systems has completed a 1.23 MW ground-mounted solar array for Presbyterian Senior Living's Meadows Retirement Community in Glen Arm, Md.
Italy-based independent power producer Building Energy developed the system, which consists of 4,180 solar panels. ABM provided engineering, procurement and construction services for the project. It is expected to generate approximately 1.68 GWh of electricity per year.
Washington Gas Energy Systems will own and operate the array under a 20-year power purchase agreement. Sol Systems, a solar energy finance firm based in Washington, D.C., acted as investment advisor to Washington Gas Energy Systems in the transaction.
