The University of California at San Diego continues to work toward climate neutrality by 2025 as part of its Campus Clean Renewable Energy Project. The multi-faceted strategy includes implementing solar power, such as the 267 kW installation atop the Trade Street Warehouse completed by Sullivan Solar Power and SunLink engineers.
"The structural make-up of the roof supports offered limited capacity to support normal forces required to confidently anchor the racking system," said Chris Gleed, Director of Project Management at Sullivan Solar Power. "A fine balance of weight distribution and anchorage distribution drove the design, with particular attention to the loading."
Sullivan Solar Power and SunLink will team up again for a roof mounted system at UC San Diego's Marine Ecosystem, Sensing, Observation and Modeling Laboratory.
