Masonic Village Solar Array Phase II

Masonic Village, Lancaster County’s second-largest retirement community, is committed to solar energy as part of its comprehensive sustainability program. Taking a forward-thinking approach, Masonic Village wanted to build upon their existing infrastructure and see a positive rate of return while meeting their goals to be more energy efficient. Because of our longstanding relationship with Masonic Village and technical expertise as a leading solar designer, RETTEW was hired to design Phase II of the community’s solar array.

Together with Solar Renewable Energy, LLC, we designed and installed a 2-megawatt solar array, comprising 5,987 panels on ten acres that will produce approximately 15 percent of the retirement community’s electricity (an additional 10 percent over the Phase I installation of 4,350 panels on five acres). The project will triple Masonic Village’s solar energy, giving the campus the most solar power production of any retirement community in the United States. As a result, Masonic Village expects to save approximately $250,000 per year in electricity costs.
