EI Solutions has partnered with The North Face to design, build and install a 1 MW solar electricity system at The North Face's West Coast distribution center, located in Visalia, Calif.
Scheduled to be completed by the end of this year, the system will be financed, owned and operated by San Francisco-based Recurrent Energy. The design calls for construction of the new system over a storm-water retention area, allowing for its dual use and providing a buffer to adjacent properties. Another key feature in the system's design is the use of RayTracker GC single-axis solar trackers, on which 5,445 Suntech photovoltaic panels will be mounted.
