From renewableenergyworld.com: "The solar rooftop of the RTA bus garages at METRO's headquarters is rated at 488 kilowatts DC, and is expected to produce around 486,760 kilowatt hours of solar power a year. Third Sun Solar of Ohio installed the system, which is comprised of 2076 of Sharp 235-watt solar modules.

The clean energy produced will prevent the emission of 350 metric tons of CO2 into the atmosphere, an amount equal to the use of 39,322 gallons of gasoline (source: www.epa.gov). The $2.5 million project -- the largest rooftop solar array in Ohio -- was funded in part through a state grant with funds provided by the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

Sharp has also been selected to provide solar panels for an additional phase of the project which will begin construction in late 2010. This phase, a second roof array on the same complex, will supply another 355 kilowatts DC and utilize an additional 1477 Sharp panels and will also be installed by Third Sun Solar."
