Suniva Inc., a U.S. manufacturer of crystalline silicon solar cells and modules, says its panels are being used to power a solar array installed by FLS Energy at the Marine Helicopter Squadron 1's greenside hangar at Quantico, Va., home to the U.S. president's Marine One helicopter.

The 120 kW system features 500 of Suniva's ART-245 panels and is expected to produce approximately 150,000 kWh annually, according to Suniva.

The solar photovoltaic system on the hangar is expected to provide two credits toward the LEED certification required under guidelines that all DON MILCON projects meet LEED standards.
