California’s pioneer solar company Sun Light & Power has successfully completed the installation of a 905-kWp solar array atop the new long-term parking garage at San Francisco International Airport.
Sun Light & Power worked with SFO, Nibbi Brothers General Contractors and solar panel manufacturer REC for the system.
The solar array is one of several at San Francisco Airport which will help the organization move toward a more sustainable future. The purpose of the array is to offset the airport’s carbon footprint and to save the airport money by reducing demand electricity charges during peak usage times.
Sun Light & Power built a strong team including MLB Energy and Liberty Electric of San Mateo to promote the utilization and participation of local businesses on this San Francisco Airport contract.
Sun Light & Power’s COO Troy Tyler said, “We are happy to help San Francisco International Airport save electricity, create well-paying jobs and reduce the carbon impact of one of the busiest airports in the world. You can see the array from the freeway when you drive by. So, we’ll have a sense of pride when seeing it for many years to come.”
From initial contract signing to substantial completion, the project took 14 months to complete, in parallel with construction of the parking garage.
