Standard Solar Inc., a developer, integrator and installer of solar electric systems, will install a solar power system at the University of Delaware (UD). The array will be installed by Standard Solar and jointly developed, owned and operated with its joint-venture partner Perpetual Energy Systems LLC, a financier of solar powered renewable energy systems.
UD's initial solar array will include more than 2,000 panels to yield an 850 kW solar electric system. Once completed, UD's system is expected to generate approximately 1,035 kWh of electricity each year.
UD's system will be funded in part from its 2009 senior-class gift, which was earmarked for solar initiatives on campus. The system will be installed over three buildings throughout the school's main campus in Newark, Del.
