Palmas del Mar goes solar with $227K installation

The project consists of 292 solar panels of 250 watts each, which will produce approximately 117,238 Kw. hour per year.

The Palmas del Mar Homeowners Association recently inaugurated a $227,000 photovoltaic project, the first at Palmas del Mar, which will supply the electrical needs of it’s main building, an 11,000 square-foot facility.
