SolarWorld Supplies PV Modules For Cincinnati Zoo Installation

SolarWorld has provided 6,400 of its PV modules for a 1.56 MW PV project at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden.

The system of 15 arrays, which was developed, engineered and installed by Melink Corp., covers 800 of the 1,000 parking spaces in the zoo's main parking lot. Combined, the arrays, covering four acres, are expected to provide about 20% of the zoo's power needs while saving millions of dollars over coming years.

Melink, based in Milford, Ohio, used SolarWorld's U.S.-made solar technology and American installation labor, as well as metal canopy structures fabricated in Ohio, for a project that almost entirely sourced domestically, the companies note.
