Habitat for Humanity Installs Sharp Solar Modules

Sharp’s new Solar Racking Systems (SRS), which include 187-watt ND-187U1 solar modules, mounting structure and a Sharp Sunvista inverter, are being installed on several Habitat for Humanity homes in Suffolk County, Long Island, New York, producing a nearly zero electricity bill for the homeowners.

Each array of Sharp modules will be 3-4 kilowatts (kW) in size — enough to provide most of the electricity used by each household. Five such homes in the Brookhaven, LI, area have been outfitted with Sharp modules, which carry a 25-year warranty, and Habitat for Humanity plans to continue fitting the homes with the energy-producing equipment. Up to 10 other newly constructed homes on LI will have solar modules installed over the next year. “Sharp solar energy systems are helping people around the world realize the financial and environmental benefits of renewable energy,” said Ron Kenedi, Vice President of Sharp’s Solar Energy Solutions Group. “By incorporating Sharp’s solar energy solutions into their projects, Habitat for Humanity of Suffolk County is making a smart decision that will benefit homebuyers and the community for years to come.” In addition to the home installations, Habitat for Humanity will install 10 kW Sharp modules on its own corporate offices in Suffolk County.
