It’s not just the living spaces at the Linden that have been renovated, but also their source of energy. The apartments at the Linden in Portland, ME, are now powered by clean, solar energy, and offsetting a portion of their collective electrical usage with solar panels. Our South Portland, ME-based team worked to install the 211 kilowatt grid-tied solar electric system in spring, 2022.

When the sun is shining, the 475 solar panels on the building’s roof produce electricity that is either used in real-time by the building, or fed back to the grid where it benefits the community. Each year, the system will generate roughly 240,678 kilowatt-hours (kWhs) of electricity, offsetting the equivalent of over 423,300 miles driven in a gas-powered car.
