(Photos courtesy of Sunrun) | UPDATED: November 17, 2023 at 12:09 p.m. An apartment community in Orange is now home to a massive solar array perched atop detached carports. The array at The Knolls will reportedly generate enough energy to give each of the 260 households a $60 monthly savings on their electricity bills using virtual net metering. Project partners include the property owner, BLDG Partners, the Foundation for Affordable Housing, the city of Orange and Southern California Edison and Sunrun. “Energy efficiency is a core element of BLDG’s strategy for improving affordable housing,” said Karen Esparza, vice president of Asset Management at BLDG Partners. “An estimated 65% of energy usage at The Knolls will now be offset by local, renewable sources.” The Knolls is a low-income housing tax credit property under a deed restriction that dedicates the property to households making less than 60% of the area median income. Built in 1963, the complex was renovated in 1997. According to Sunrun, 89% percent of the energy produced by the 646-kilowatt solar system, will be credited to the residents’ accounts, free of charge. The project was paid for through the California Public Utilities Commission’s Solar on Multifamily Affordable Housing program and the Inflation Reduction Act. State money for the initiative comes from “purchase greenhouse gas allowances through the state’s cap-and-trade program,” according to a statement by Sunrun.
