Preservation of Affordable Housing (POAH), Salem MAServices: Design and Construction
The Salem Fairweather Apartment Building is managed by Preservation of Affordable Housing (POAH), which seeks to make rental homes available to low-income families and seniors on fixed incomes. Through funding from Mass Housing, 27.6 kW of solar PV was designed and installed by Zapotec on an adjacent hillside. The electricity generated is used in the building for common area loads such as the elevator, community room, and hallway lighting.
The system is monitored via SolrenView, and production data is available to the public through the link below.
