    Solar-Powered Apartments

    Colorado College contracted Independent Power Systems to design and install a 24.6 kW commercial solar power system on the Edith Gaylord Apartments in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

    Project Highlights

    Location: Colorado Springs, Colorado

    System Size: 24.6 kW

    Est. Annual Energy Production: 56,308 kWh

    Project Type: Commercial Solar

    Client: Colorado College


Independent Power Systems designed and installed a 24.6 kW commercial solar array on the roof of the Edith Gaylord apartments on the Colorado College campus in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The system is estimated to generate 36,118 kWh per year, which is the equivalent of planting 539 trees or offsetting 23 tons of carbon dioxide annually. The Colorado College solar panels are expected to pay for themselves within ten years thanks to the energy savings and generous commercial solar incentives such as the Federal Investment Tax Credit and MACRS depreciation.
