This extensive and architecturally complex campus required a forward-thinking design solution, including both rooftop and carport PV arrays.
This unique carport is on top of the 15-story parking structure. Careful planning was required to design the carport attachment as well as routing conduit all the way down to ground-level.
The renewable energy installation is positioned on the carport structure on the Foundation’s campus. The array is one component of the new Hilton Foundation campus strategy to be more energy efficient and environmentally responsible.
Franklin Realty engaged us to build this solar carport system for their tenant Abbott Laboratories. The system is comprised of a 548 kW net-metered carport system.
The Fortinet Solar Campus project is a 908 kW net metered distributed generation solar photovoltaic system that covers two rooftops and three parking lots to power this corporate campus. We defined the project and proposed the ideal solutions to exceed the customer's expectations. We engineered and constructed this project in 2014 and continue to operate the solar facility to meet the intended financial returns.
The Eastern Long Island Solar Project (ELISP) is the largest combined carport installation in the state of New York with over 21 acres of solar panels installed across six different sites. The combined 12.8 MW photovoltaic system feeds power directly to local electric utility, the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA). We worked with a multidisciplinary team of engineering firms, contractors, and project stakeholders to meet various local and regional codes and standards.
The USVA Sacramento project focuses on increased energy savings through installation of a commercial solar rooftop and solar carport system. This system expands on the previously installed rooftop system by adding an acre of carport solar panels for a total of three acres of solar arrays, with a total expected output of 558 kW. The newly installed carport system is expected to generate approximately 832,000 kWh annually, while the rooftop system will generate 60,800 kWh. The solar carport system will also provide shade for vehicles and improved lighting at night. The entire solar generating facility will be interconnected and operate parallel to the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD).
This solar rooftop facility was part of the California Institute of Technology sustainability program. The solar modules are supported by an innovative space frame structure to allow for wide spans using fewer columns.
