SCHOTT Solar PV Inc., VE Group LLC and Affordable Solar Group LLC have inaugurated a 1.1 MW PV array at The Bell Group's headquarters' parking structure in Albuquerque, N.M. According to the companies, this project is the largest PV array in New Mexico.
The project uses over 5,000 locally made solar modules by SCHOTT, whose U.S. headquarters are in Albuquerque. The installation covers five acres of parking area and will generate over 1,600,000 kWh of electricity annually – enough to meet 80% of The Bell Group's electricity needs.
The project implementation team consisted of Affordable Solar Group, an Albuquerque-based solar equipment distributor and project developer; VE Group (Valley Electric), the prime contractor with offices in New Mexico and Colorado; and VE Group's local and regional subcontractors, including Coupland-Moran Engineers, US Prefab, National Roofing and others.
