Dublin, Ga – MAGE SOLAR, a turn-key provider of optimally coordinated PV-system solutions, and YellowLite Inc, a solar panel design and installation company serving the entire Midwest, recently completed the installation of a 59.5 kW solar array.
Located in Columbus, Ohio, the PV system is the largest residential solar array in the state of Ohio to date. Dr. Marvyn Samuel, the system owner and a strong solar advocate, wanted to eliminate his power bill entirely with clean, renewable energy in order to do what he could to reduce his carbon footprint.
“The system has produced above our expectations already,” states Dr. Samuel, a prominent long-time resident of the Columbus, Ohio, area. “In fact, it takes complete care of all our energy needs, including our electric cars. Solar works so well, that I am thinking about expanding the system – it’s just a wonderful feeling to have the sun produce your electricity.”
NABCEP-certified solar installer YellowLite Inc. designed and installed the solar system which is expected to generate over 66,000 kWh of clean energy annually. This amount will produce the energy value of $7330 in the first year alone. Excess energy is fed back into the grid and AEP Ohio reimburses Dr. Samuel for the clean, renewable power. Since MAGE SOLAR ensures a 30 year 80% power output guarantee, Dr. Samuel can be assured that his investment is producing zero-emission energy for more than a generation to come.
Azam Kazmi, CEO of YellowLite comments, “The sales staff and the engineering department at Mage Solar were very helpful to us during the installation process. The utility company AEP Ohio worked right along with us to connect the system. This system will give Dr. Samuel energy independency for years to come.”
Although most home owners will opt for a system the size of 5 to 8 kW, the residential market has been experiencing a tremendous boom recently. As panel and installation costs have decreased sharply, solar systems have become a viable energy solution for many Americans. Powering more than 1.3 million homes currently, the residential market has grown 53% in the first quarter this year (compared to Q1/2012), establishing solar as the fastest growing energy sector in the nation and employing a record number of workers, currently more than 119,000.Tagged with tED
