System to be Installed for Pilot: 6.6 kW Solar PV System, 5.5 kW Hybrid Inverter, & 10 kWh Battery Storage

To qualify to participate in the residential energy storage pilot, the participant must be the home owner of the residence. The home should have the following characteristics:

  • South, South-west or South-east facing rooftop
  • Ideal roof slope between 3:12 to 8:12 (15-35 degrees)
  • No shading on the roof face where solar modules will be installed
  • Roof shingles less than 5 years old
  • Area required to hold up to 27 solar modules ~ 500-600 square feet
  • Multiple pitches would be acceptable on lower sloped rooftops (i.e. South-east and South-west roof faces with varying area)
