Solar Array

The 38-panel, 7.2-kilowatt solar photovoltaic (PV) array from Leviton Solar uses 190-watt Suntech solar panels in a parallel array, in this case meaning every two panels acts independently, so if a portion is shaded the entire array isn’t affected. The system’s 19 converters boost the DC voltage to 360 volts, and is then converted to AC power at a Kace inverter. The system is estimated to produce 10,273 kWh of solar energy in its first year, and is designed to provide 93 percent of the home’s electricity needs. Photo by LathamArchitectural.com
