Alpha Group member installs high-tech solar system

Alpha Energy, a member of Bellingham-based The Alpha Group, recently installed a 21-kilowatt solar power system at the U.S. Forest Service office in Tucson, Ariz.
The system, known as an elevated solar racking structure, is a series of solar panels raised above the ground, appearing like a large carport.

"Several Tucson area organizations are taking advantage of our Elevated Racking Structures to use their existing parking lots to generate solar energy," said Drew Zogby, president and COO of Alpha Technologies. "Thanks to utility rebates, and federal and state incentives, we were able to work with this client to come up with a cost-effective solar energy system to meet their unique requirements and short timeframe for the installation."

Zogby said that with design, engineering and project management staff in-house, Alpha Technologies was able to install the system in only 30 days.

The grid-tied system is expected to generate more than 32,000 kilowatt hours annually, enough to power about three homes. The resulting carbon dioxide offset of 36,765 pounds is equivalent to preventing the annual emissions of more than three cars.
