The ground- and roof-mounted and carport systems will comprise nearly 7 MW of solar generation capacity.
REC Solar will serve as the engineering, procurement and solar system contractor for the systems. HICAPS, a service-disabled veteran-owned small business, will act as the prime general contractor, responsible for site civil construction and overall management and implementation of the projects.
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is under an executive order to implement sustainable programs that minimize the environmental impact of operations. Solar energy systems have been a large component of the VA's strategy to meet this executive order.
With these systems, REC Solar will have a total of 21 installations with the Department of Veterans Affairs.
