Spanning more than an acre of the roof on the University of Akron’s Stiles Field House Athletic Facility, the 638.1 kW array is the largest of its kind in Ohio.  Representing the University’s commitment to energy conservation, the installation offsets approximately 1% of the institution’s energy consumption and reduces the peak demand by nearly 5%. With an estimated cost savings of $2.3 million over 30 years, because of AP’s turn-key Design-Build-Operate solution, the University had no out-of-pocket costs yet maintains the long-term ability to purchase the array from AP at either the 10- or 20-year anniversary of project completion.
