SunSource® Commercial Energy System Wins 2011 Dealer Design Award

2011 Dealer Design Award - Gold

RICHARDSON, TX (July 11, 2011) – Lennox Commercial’s foray into solar power – the SunSource® Commercial Energy System – has earned a GOLD Award in the ACHR News 2011 Dealer Design Awards for excellence in product design. The annual industry awards are presented by The Air Conditioning Heating and Refrigeration News magazine. The ACHR News Dealer Design Awards were judged by an independent panel of contractors nationwide.

The SunSource Commercial Energy System by Lennox is the first and only commercial HVAC system to integrate directly with solar power. Available on Lennox’ high-efficiency Energence® Rooftop Unit, the SunSource system uses the sun’s free, clean solar energy to provide effective efficiency levels of up to 34 SEER and beyond6. Each solar-ready Energence rooftop unit can accommodate up to 21 solar panels for maximum efficiency.

“We are thrilled that our SunSource Commercial Energy System was chosen for the GOLD Award,” said Larry Wei, Senior Product Manager for Lennox Rooftop Units and the SunSource System. “Our SunSource system is a versatile, cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution that can reduce a building owner’s energy costs significantly.”

Additional benefits of the SunSource System:

  • Microinverter technology individually controls the panels, making the system safer, more reliable and easier to install
  • No changes to a building’s electrical wiring infrastructure are required
  • The communication module provides online monitoring of system status, energy production and environmental benefits in real-time
  • Dependence on the energy grid is reduced during peak load times for substantial energy savings
  • By using the clean, renewable energy of the sun, a building’s carbon footprint and CO2 emissions are reduced
  • The SunSource system may qualify for tax credits from state and local governments
