Sullivan Solar Power plans to install nearly 784 kW of new solar power at the University of California, San Diego (UC San Diego). The project is expected to save the university approximately $2 million over 20 years.

UC San Diego has become a state leader in deployment of solar power, now having more solar deployed than any other university in San Diego, Sullivan Solar notes. All told, UC San Diego will have about 3 MW of solar on its facilities with the new project.

To support the national economy, the solar panels, inverters and racking materials specified for the new project are all manufactured in the U.S. Sullivan Solar Power will be installing 1,986 SunPower 435 W modules manufactured in Richmond, Calif., and  Advanced Energy Inverters manufactured in Bend, Ore.

In addition to the solar installations, the project will include five additional electric vehicle charging stations. Currently, there are six fleet chargers and seven public chargers operational on campus.
