Canadian Solar Completes PV System At San Jose International Airport


an Solar Inc. and Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC) have completed a roof-mount photovoltaic solar electric system on the airport's new 3,350-space, seven-story rental car center and public parking garage. Featuring 4,680 Canadian Solar CS5P monocrystalline modules, this new 1.12 MW installation is part of the SJC Terminal Area Improvement Program – the comprehensive $1.3 billion initiative to modernize and replace the airport's terminal facilities. The installation has a projected annual output of 1,713 MWh, which is expected to provide enough power to offset at least 20% of the facility's total electrical power needs. The project is the largest municipal solar array in San Jose to date and one of the largest airport solar electric installations in the U.S., according to Canadian Solar and SJC. San Jose-based Rosendin Electric Inc. engineered and installed the project in partnership with the company's lead project contractor, Hensel Phelps Construction Co.
