System Size

The popular Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery, located in the heart of downtown Boulder on Pearl Street. The owners decided to optimize their roof space by investing in a 9.856kW solar system (Sharp panels) in November 2010. They viewed this project as part of their personal and corporate responsibility to reduce their carbon footprint while generating energy savings in the process. The price of their system was more than compensated for by a $5.09/watt cumulative offset from a combination of upfront rebates, tax credits, and accelerated depreciation.

Prior to the brewery installation, the owner had Independent Power Systems install a PV system on his residence.
