American Capital Energy (ACE) and PPCSolar have inaugurated a 200 kW photovoltaic solar power system at the Thornburg Campus, home of Thornburg Investment Management, in Santa Fe, N.M.
The Thornburg Campus was awarded a Gold certification in the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design rating system in September 2009. ACE developed, engineered and managed the project, and PPCSolar installed the array.
The roof-mounted installation consists of 840 235 W Yingli polycrystalline modules and an Advanced Energy Solaron 250 inverter. It is projected to supply 20% to 30% of the building's electricity usage.
