THiNKnrg has installed a 397.5 kW solar rooftop array at the Oshman Family JCC (OFJCC) campus in Palo Alto, Calif.
The OFJCC solar array includes 1,840 of Trina Solar's Trinasmart solar panels distributed across the rooftops of the 12 buildings of the Taube Koret Campus for Jewish Life. Conergy will own and operate the solar power system, providing electricity to the OFJCC under a 20-year power purchase agreement. The OFJCC solar installation is expected to generate nearly 617 MWh of electricity per year.
‘This is one of the more innovative deals we have done,’ says Zach Rubin, CEO of THiNKnrg. ‘Solar is advantageous in Palo Alto, but it still has to make sense financially. We identified that the Taube Koret Campus had enough quality roof space to facilitate a large installation that could take advantage of incentives and be attractive to investors.’
