Washington Gas Energy Systems Inc. has completed two solar projects that will generate renewable energy for Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, Calif., and Corcoran Unified School District in Corcoran, Calif. Both facilities will be owned and operated by Washington Gas Energy Systems under 20-year power purchase agreements.
The 672 kW solar array at Western University consists of a roof-mounted system with 2,688 solar panels distributed among three buildings and a carport on the campus. It is expected to generate approximately 1.11 GWh electricity per year. Green Energy Partners developed the project. Conergy managed engineering, procurement and construction.
The 1.27 MW array at the Corcoran Unified School District consists of 4,422 solar panels that span seven sites. The project is expected to produce nearly 2.13 GWh hours of electricity per year, which will cover approximately 88% of the school district's electricity needs. The project was developed by AMSOLAR and was engineered and installed by Conergy. TerraVerde Renewable Partners acted as the consultant for the district.
