Codale Electric, a Sonepar company, recently partnered with Sonnen, Auric Electric and Wasatch Group on the construction of Soleil Lofts. Located outside of Salt Lake City, the all-electric community is the first of its kind in the country.
Construction on the project began in spring 2019 and is expected to be finished by November 2020. It consists of 5.2 megawatts (MW) of solar power and 12.6 MW of energy storage, helping the community fulfill its mission to reduce its carbon footprint with an overall clean air solution. Codale provided solar racking, PV, general electrical materials, inverters and batteries to help complete the project.
“This community is the first of its kind in the US and is constructed to respond to the needs of the grid and not the other way around, as has been the traditional relationship between solar energy and the utility,” said Jess Green, renewable energy branch manager for Codale. “This is the way of the future and we’re excited to be a part of it.”
