Adroit Solar Energy & Engineering to install on-site, solar hot water system in San Diego

san_diego

Adroit Solar Energy & Engineering is installing a solar hot water system at the Celadon, the newest high-rise in downtown San Diego.

Developed, owned, and managed by non-profit Bridge Housing Corp., the building will feature 250 units for senior citizens and low income families.  

“The affordable housing community is strongly focusing on renewable energy because they receive higher rebates under the California Solar Initiative,” said William Chen, vice president of Adroit’s Engineering sector. “It significantly reduces operating expenses, promotes environmental consciousness, and simply an excellent investment for our community's future."

Turner Construction will assist in designing, engineering, building, and maintaining the solar hot water and photovoltaic (PV) systems.

The system will include solar thermal collectors, a 2,448 gallon Hasse Storage tank, a PV facade of 125 260w 1Soltech monocrystalline modules.

The Celdon is expected to be complete in early 2015.
