139.57 kW - Goodwill Oviedo

NovaSol Energy developed Goodwill Industries of Central Florida, Inc's second solar PV system with a capacity of 139.57 kW.  NovaSol’s development group maximized the available real estate at the host location for optimal long-term energy economics.  It is our goal to achieve maximum energy density per given area.  High efficiency Suniva solar panels along with the SMA Tripower inverters with MPPT architecture that provide for maximum energy harvesting and efficient long-term O&M. Approximately 12,000 square feet of the 20,000 rooftop space was utilized to host the system. This project required no roof penetrations in meeting with the increased wind speed demands. It is expected to generate enough energy equivalent to what is annually consumed in 13 average Floridians’ homes.

The 139.57 kW project furthers Goodwill’s commitment of reinvesting local resources back into the community by providing job training and placement opportunities to the next level. By investing in the abundant local energy source, solar, Goodwill will be able to provide additional opportunities and services to many more people over the long-term. The solar system is expected to have a 6 year payback, after which the system will provide 90%+ of the location's annual energy needs for free ($20k+ value) for nearly three decades.
