Photovoltaic solar panels at Schindler's North American headquarters building
Schindler’s North American headquarters building located in Morristown, New Jersey features a 21,000 square-foot solar array, comprised of 1,236 photovoltaic solar panels. Each panel will generate 230 watts of renewable energy, and the system is expected to provide approximately 11 percent of the building’s total annual power consumption, enough to power more than 90 houses for one month.
