Positive Energy Solar has completed a new 156 kW solar array for Santa Fe Community College (SFCC) in Santa Fe, N.M. The array joins two existing solar installations built in 2014 that will provide the campus with 1.7 MW of solar power.
The new installation at the college's Higher Education Center combines a solar parking structure with rooftop arrays that will produce approximately 70% of the energy to power the new building.
SFCC says the existing two arrays save the college more than $200,000 per year. The first array that Positive Energy Solar completed for SFCC consisted of three dual axis trackers, which are featured prominently in the college's Sustainable Technologies curriculum.
