Bell Manor Apartments

Precision rebuilds Windsor Senior Project and provides Energy Upgrade

An established senior community nestled in the heart of downtown Windsor, CA. The Bell Manor Apartments was originally constructed in 1980.

Precision, in collaboration with American Solar delivers an aesthetically considerate and highly efficient 125 Kw system to Bell Manor Apartments.

The photovoltaic electrical system will produce about 190,000 kWh per year and will provide 100% of the electricity for the common areas, and approximately 25% of the electricity used by the tenants. Rigorous design and building standards were met as these apartments were specifically designed for senior living. With that in mind, American Solar flush mounted 532 Canadian Solar 235 watt modules coupled with Enphase micro-inverters, on 10 buildings. The system was completed in November 2013 under MASH rebate, which alone subsidized almost 50% of the project. The system comes with a 25-year warranty and was completed on time and on budget.

This project was assembled with green building practices and sustainability in mind from the old materials that were recycled to the new energy efficient materials and products that were installed in each unit.
