One array will be located on primary hipped-roof massing of rear elevation, and feature eight individual panels (arranged in two adjoining rows of four). Second array will be located on the lower hipped-roof addition roof, and feature four adjoining panels. Panels will be 39" wide by 65" long and 1.6" thick and will be fixed to the roof via a metal rail system. Additional utility meter and disconnect will be attached to the west side of the building, adjacent to the existing meter. Solar panels will not be visible from the primary right-of-way.

Site Info
Queen Anne, c. 1900

One and one-half story frame residence with aluminum siding. Hip roof with lower cross gables, asphalt shingle covering, two gabled dormers. Recessed portico. One over one double hung windows. Interior offset brick chimney. Brick foundation. Rectangular plan.


1. The house is a contributing structure to the Edgewood-Park City H Overlay and National Register Historic District. 2. The proposed elevation for installation is the rear (south elevation). The house is situated at the center of the block and the rear elevation faces the alley and the adjoining block of houses fronting Woodbine Avenue. The elevation to receive solar panels is not visible from Jefferson Avenue and would be very minimally visible from Woodbine Avenue. 3. The solar panels and racking will be mounted parallel to the roof slope and will project approximately two inches high above the roof, including the racking system. The necessary utility meter and disconnect will be installed on the west elevation of the building, next to the existing electrical meter, on a non-character-defining section of the house. 4. No historic roofing materials or features will be altered or removed for installation of the solar panels or associated equipment.
