Rooftop solar for apartments
The options for solar powered apartment blocks continue to expand. Perth-based developer Psaros has recently completed an 86 apartment development that has incorporated a 180kw rooftop system, wired so that each apartment has its own 2kw PV array. Each apartment is then able to use a software program to monitor their energy consumption, compare this with the energy generated through their panels, and also compare how they're tracking against their neighbours.
