20 interconnected solar (PV) panel systems installed

Columbia, MO

Lyon Crest Properties wanted to lower their utility costs and have a sustainable impact on the community. They reached out to EnergyLink as the complex was under construction.

EnergyLink conducted a comprehensive commercial energy audit evaluating all aspects of the buildings’ energy usage. As the building was built in 2016, all mechanically systems and infrastructure were in excellent condition. With this in mind, it was determined Solar PV system would maximize energy savings.

We designed a roof-top solar array consisting of 20 separate interconnections to each unit. In total, the array is 53 kW and split up evenly among the apartments.

Lyon Crest Apartments were able to provide on-site power and significantly reduced electricity costs for tenants.

The sustainable component of this investment was a major plus for Lyon Crest Properties. Through this project they offset 112,436 pounds of CO2, equivalent to burning 54,422 pounds of coal.

“We are very excited to be working with Lyon’s Crest Apartments,” claimed Chris Ihler, EnergyLink’s CEO. “Being a part of a college town, it is great to get our students (the tenants) involved in the community with a project like this. We are looking forward to having this project completely interconnected and ready before students return for the fall semester.”
