The 870kW system will consist of 48 MC solar modules sourced from Day4 Energy. The solar electric system will be located on the rooftop of the Habilitation Center’s new industrial facility in northeast Portland in Oregon.

The renewable energy generated from the system will power expansion of the Habilitation Center’s in-house manufacturing, assembly, order fulfillment, courier and warehousing services to a variety of Oregon and Washington companies.

Any excess energy generated from the solar system will be delivered to Portland General Electric’s grid and the Habilitation Center will be credited for any unused energy under Oregon’s net-metering law.

The solar installation is expected to eventually save the Habilitation Center nearly $75,000 in annual energy costs and reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 18,000 tons over the life of the system.
