Maloney Heights, 5.7 KW, Port Angeles, 2011

Maloney Heights is perhaps the first housing facility for the homeless in the United States equipped with a grid tied solar PV array. The 5.7 KW array consisting of 30 Silicon Energy 195 watt modules and two 3 KW inverters will produce approximately 6300 KW hours of electricity each year resulting in monthly utility bill savings. The state production incentive of 54 cents per KWH will realize about $3,400 in annual cash payments through June 30, 2020. The facility is operated by Serenity House of Clallam County, a private non-profit agency that provides emergency shelter, transitional housing, and supportive services to homeless individuals and families.
