SOLAR CANOPY PROVIDES POWER FOR HIGHER LEARNING
Atlanta, Ga.—August 24, 2017 — Quest Renewables, Inc., a leading solar racking company, announced the completion of a solar canopy system with their customer Standard Solar on the campus of Salisbury University (SU).
Completed in less than three months, the 541.8 kW system is comprised of 1,548 modules that will produce 765,100 kilowatt hours of electricity annually and provide electricity to three campus buildings. The system is expected to provide the equivalent of 100 percent of the electricity needed to power the combined annual operation of three SU residence halls: Manokin, Pocomoke and Wicomico. Standard Solar will own, operate and maintain the system for 20 years, after which ownership will revert to SU.
The solar system features Quest Renewables QuadPod™ double cantilever which enabled the rapid project installation timeline. With three foundations per 100kW, the QuadPod double cantilever can be applied to any parking lot configuration irrespective of parking spot width or drive aisle dimensions.
90% of QuadPod’s construction takes place on the ground, inclusive of module and inverter wiring. After ground assembly, electrical and lighting, the canopies are lifted by crane for final installation, minimizing overhead work and optimizing worksite safety.
