Kyocera Solar Inc. and APS Energy Services (APSES) have completed four solar energy systems at Arizona State University's (ASU) Tempe campus. Collectively, the systems incorporate 3,572 Kyocera KD-210 solar modules.
With a combined peak generating capacity of 750 kW, the systems will generate more than 1.2 million kWh each year, according to the companies. Designed and installed by APSES, the rooftop systems are mounted on the Carson Student Athletic Center (71 kW), Weatherup Center (141 kW), Hayden Library (249kW) and Packard Drive South Parking Structure (290 kW).
The installations contribute to the second phase of a campus-wide solarization project that is intended to help ASU attain 10 MW of solar generating capacity this year.
