Irving Independent School Districtl will be the largest net zero energy school in the United States. It has selected GridPoint, Inc. to install a more than 500 kilowatt solar panel system. It is specifically designed for commercial rooftops, offering a low weight, non-penetrating mounting system, superior wind and soiling performance. The photovoltaic surface will maximize the 150,000 square foot school’s roof space to ensure generation exceeds consumption.
The solar energy system of this zero energy building will feature an intelligent energy monitoring system to record and display and analyse energy production through a web-interface.
