Suniva, a metro-Atlanta based manufacturer of high-quality, high-efficiency crystalline silicon solar cells and modules, today announces its high-powered modules power the Veterans Health Care System of the Ozarks, in Fayetteville, Arkansas. This healthcare services unit joins a large and growing list of solar powered Veteran’s Administration facilities throughout the United States in Suniva’s public sector projects portfolio.
The 321-kW Buy America-compliant Suniva array consists of three parking canopies, covering 100 parking spaces with power feeding directly into the primary distribution loop for the facility. The installation was engineered and installed by Meridian Solar, complete with a Solectria 266 kW inverter and a Draker Monitoring System. A weather station and SCADA controls enhance the system, providing real-time information.
“We are delighted that Meridian Solar chose Suniva’s Buy America-compliant modules for this Veteran facility,” said Matt Card, vice president global sales and marketing at Suniva. “Our high-powered modules are proving more valuable than ever before as the government’s renewable energy objective continues to be achieved.”
“Meridian was eager to work with Suniva on this government project. High-quality, Buy America-compliant modules are a requirement for most of our federal projects, so having a partnership with Suniva has proven very beneficial,” said Andrew McCalla, president and founder at Meridian Solar.
