Charleston, South Carolina based Hannah Solar Government Services, a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), renewable energy company has been selected to design, engineer, and procure materials for a 1.08 MW PV system for the United States Navy at Naval Base Guam.
Naval Base Guam is a strategic, joint U.S. naval base located in the Northern Mariana Islands of the Pacific Ocean. Among its tenants are multiple U.S. Navy submarines, a Coast Guard Cutter, as well as nearly 30 other commands. Their strategic location has been vital to protecting U.S. and its allies’ interests since 1944.
The ground mount solar PV energy system in design will result in significant reductions in the costs incurred on the base annually using traditional power sources. HSGS has completed multiple projects on U.S. military Installations at home and overseas, including Joint Base Pearl Harbor- Hickam, Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, and the Ronald Reagan Ballistic Missile Defense Site at Meck Island, among others.
“Naval Base Guam provides critical support and protection for the United States, and we are honored to be able to provide them with design and support for this ground mount solar system.” said Col (RET.) Dave McNeil, President and CEO of HSGS.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
