Solar For Cities
Arch Electric has been empowering Wisconsin’s cities with access to solar energy since 2003. Completing projects in Sheboygan, Fitchburg, Whitefish Bay, Wauwatosa, and many more.
Arch Electric proudly announced in April 2021 that it completed the installation of a new solar panel system for the city of Wauwatosa. Located atop the building that houses the city hall, civic center, and public library, power generated by the solar panels is estimated to reduce the city’s energy costs by approximately $40,000 annually.
The system in Wauwatosa – comprised of 1,036 375W solar panels – has a maximum output of 300kw AC. The arrays are positioned on a 20-degree tilt ballasted system with no penetrations into the roof deck. The use of the system will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 383 tons, which is the equivalent of 39,074 miles of gas being consumed. It will generate enough electricity to power 63 homes for one year.
