All-Electric Apartment Development

A new apartment complex in Herriman, Utah, is offering residents clean energy living and greater energy resilience along with access to EV charging and a club house with a pool and fitness center. Soleil Lofts is a 600-unit, all-electric development that uses rooftop solar and a battery storage system from Sonnen in every residence to form a 12.6 MW-hour “virtual power plant” (VPP). Though the $34 million VPP is owned by project developer The Wasatch Group, it will be managed by the local utility, Rocky Mountain Power (RMP). The utility will be able to operate the community’s aggregated battery output to help power residents during high-demand periods. And, the combination of solar and storage will enable the community to remain powered up in the event of a grid outage.
