Pinellas County, Florida -- Solar Energy Management (SEM), a solar power company headquartered in Tampa, recently donated and installed a 5.62KW solar power system on a Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County home in Pinellas Park, the first Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County home to use solar electricity.

“SEM is proud to donate the 5.62KW solar power system and provide the new homeowner with a near-zero energy home,” said Scott McIntyre, CEO of SEM. “Over the course of its 25-year life cycle, the system will save the homeowner more than $50,000 in energy costs, and at the same time eliminate 150 tons from the homeowner’s carbon footprint, which is the equivalent of planting 3,495 trees.”

The first Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County solar-powered home will utilize additional energy efficient technologies, including solar hot water, insulated windows, attic insulation and efficient air conditioning, all in an effort to help the homeowner keep energy costs down. Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County will work with the homeowner to evaluate the energy cost savings over the initial 12 months as part of a pilot program analyzing the benefits of solar electricity.

The 5.62 KW solar power system was donated and installed by SEM and its suppliers and financial contributors: GexPro Orlando, First Housing and PCM Solar.

“The solar power system we’ve installed has the latest technology to provide power without batteries,” said McIntyre. “If the power goes out, so long as the sun is shining, the home has power.”
