On December 18, 2015 the Solar Investment Tax Credits (ITC) were extended for residential and commercial projects through the end of 2019. The credit then drops to 26% in 2020 and 22% in 2021 before dropping permanently to 10% for commercial projects and 0% for residential projects. However, language in the bill allows owners who begin construction on their solar projects before the end of 2021 to claim the larger credit if their project is placed in service before the end of 2023.
NW Wind & Solar recently completed the PV installation at the new Sammamish Town Center currently under construction at 22704 SE 4th St in Sammamish, WA. Working with our parent company, SME Inc of Seattle (who is doing the electrical for the retail and medical buildings), we installed a 9.6 kW PV energy system, using 32 SolarWorld modules and one SMA string inverter on an Iron Ridge racking system using non-penetrating S-5 standing metal seam clamps.
The PV array is installed on the roof of the stair and elevator tower by Metropolitan Market’s eastern entrance. The approximately 10,000 kWh of solar energy produced will offset some of the Town Center’s lighting costs.
The Village will also include a unique water management system. Approximately 17,500 square feet of pervious paving and a green roof system will manage surface water by absorbing and filtering rainfall. The additional roof run-off will go through a filtering and treatment process in the 1,000,000-gallon underground vault and will be filtered once more before being used to irrigate property landscaping. Remaining water will be filtered once again before entering the city’s storm water system. Total project completion is expected the first half of 2017. General Contractor is J. R. Abbott; Architect is Lance Mueller & Associates.
