Biltmore Apartments Solar Carports

Solar Carports reduce electric bills at the Biltmore Apartments in Thousand Oaks, CA

by Lauren Dansey

Solar Electrical Systems of Westlake Village, CA, has completed solar carport installations for two 500-unit apartment complexes in the area, eliminating their $2,000 monthly electric bills.
 New carports totaling 75kW were installed at the Biltmore Apartments in Thousand Oaks, CA.  New carport structures were built, taking advantage of the 30% federal tax credit for the solar electrical system, carports, new lighting and paving, and new electrical systems.  In fact, rebates and tax incentives paid for 85% of the project.  The solar electrical system will save the owners over $4 million over the system’s lifetime, and also improve parking, security, and storage on the property.
 At Oakview Apartments in Westlake Village, CA, 53kW of solar panels were mounted on existing carport structures.  Leaky roofs on the structures were removed and replaced with new roofs when the solar system was installed, again taking advantage of the 30% federal tax credit, with rebates and tax incentives paying for over 77% of the project.  The new system will save the owners over $1 million over the next 25 years.
