Kyocera Solar Inc. and East Los Angeles College (ELAC) have inaugurated a 1.2 MW solar electric generating system at ELAC's Monterey Park campus. The system, designed and built by Chevron Energy Solutions, consists of approximately 6,000 Kyocera KC200 solar panels. MMA Renewable Ventures owns, maintains and operates the system.
‘The event we celebrated demonstrates the viability of solar energy and the practicality of the industry's latest solar-energy financing tool,’ says Tom Dyer, vice president of marketing and government affairs at Kyocera Solar. ‘Power purchase agreements like the one ELAC has chosen promise to make solar electricity an indispensable contributor to California's energy mix.’
