Zapotec provides design-build services for rooftop solar energy on historical building, Cambridge, MAServices: Design and Construction Operations and Maintenance
In June 2017, Zapotec Energy completed a 68 kW solar energy system on the roof of the historic Hathaway Lofts apartment building, located at 15 Richdale Avenue in Cambridge, MA. The building was home to Hathaway Bakery in the early 1900s, but has since been restored into a three-level loft apartment community. The rooftop solar project was approved by the Cambridge Historical Commission because there is limited visibility of the system from the street. The project includes 211 solar panels and five inverters, which were mounted to a ballasted racking system. The solar energy helps to offset the common load areas of the building. The system was installed by Belcastro Electric LLC, an electrical contracting company headquartered in Mendon, MA. Zapotec Energy continues to monitor the system and provide ongoing operations and maintenance services.
