System Description
Harmon Electric

Design Considerations

Module/Racking Layout

Harmon Solar is proposing a system on the roof to interconnect with the meter feeding your suite in the building.
The 116.400 kWp array is consisting of 448 Q-Cells 260 watt modules on the existing roof.
The roof system brings the best economics to the project.

System Sizing

The system is designed to offset the energy consumption (kWh) on the interconnecting meter.

Inverter and Gear Location

Inverters and gear will be located near the electric meter and SES.

Module Selection

The proposed design is using Q-Cells 260 watt, modules (spec sheet included in the exhibits). Q-Cells modules are
characterized by high yields and excellent reliability. Q-Cells includes a 12 year product warranty and a 25 year linear
performance guarantee.

Inverter Selection

Our proposed design is for SMA Inverters. SMA boasts the highest reliability and efficiency in the industry. SMA inverters
carry a standard 10-year warranty with options to extend up to 20 years.

Levelized Energy Cost (LEC)


Your Hedge Against Utility Inflation: Your investment in this project will protect you from utility rate inflation. Levelized Energy
Cost (LEC) analysis provides us with a "hurdle rate" (the levelized energy cost) which can be compared to the expected change
in utility rates (by way of utility rate inflation). LEC is the average lifetime cost of energy produced by a particular system. We can
compare the LEC to the current utility rate and its expected change in price as time goes on. In this manner one can judge the
investment as a "better bet" than utility rates to contain energy costs. Represented below is the average cost of utility energy
versus the cost of energy produced (LEC) by your system over time.

Carbon Footprint Reduction


Over the life of your system 4,035 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) will be eliminated from your footprint.

4,035 Tons of CO2 is Equivalent to:

Planting 94,016 trees.

Driving reduced by 8,070,000 auto miles, or


411,570 gallons of gasoline.

Displacing CO2 emissions from the annual


electric use of 457 homes.

3,931,790 pounds (1,966 tons) of coal burned.
