Solar Powered Building

This new Manufacturing Facility in Tucson, Arizona for Latitude Corporation was designed to be completely solar powered dependant.  It was engineered to provide a system that generates enough electricity to efficiently run it’s facility and sell the power overages to the local power company.  With lucrative incentives provided by the local power company, the start up costs for the system were approximately 25% of the initial costs, in addition to the monthly contributions of the local power company for the electrical sell back of excess kilowatts.

Latitude’s Manufacturing facility is 65,000 s.f. and was constructed as a metal building, with an infill of masonry block.  This type of construction combined with the louvered shaded clerestory windows produces a highly efficient green building, in a location that is exposed to extreme temperatures and weather conditions.
