Stellar Energy, a large-scale solar energy project developer and systems integrator based in Rohnert Park, Calif., has completed a 296 kW solar project for ASC Profiles Inc., a manufacturer of steel roof, wall, and deck building products.
The new 296 kW system consists of five individual solar photovoltaic arrays at ASC Profiles' manufacturing plant in West Sacramento, Calif.
Four of the systems are elevated carport structures, and one is a roof-mounted array. The total array area is 22,133 square feet and features 1,056 Eoplly 280 W solar modules and one Solectria SGI 266 kW inverter. The project produces enough electricity to power approximately 70% of ASC's predicted energy consumption.
ASC entered into a power purchase agreement with Energy Finance Co.'s FUSE Fund LP, which provided the capital required to build the system. Stellar Energy provided all engineering, procurement, and construction services and was responsible for managing the entire project.
