Standard Solar Inc. has begun construction of a 753 kW system for Maryland's Anne Arundel Community College (AACC). The entire photovoltaic system is being installed on top of a covered parking structure.
As a Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) Project Sunburst Partner, AACC received an American Reinvestment and Recovery Act grant from the MEA specifically designed for the development of solar electric projects on public buildings in Maryland. Washington Gas Energy Services Inc. provided the balance of the financing for the project and will own and operate the system once installed.
The system, which uses a Protek Park PV canopy system, will consist of more than 3,100 Buy American-compliant Suniva solar modules. The system is projected to save the college more than $300,000 over the next 15 years.
