Port of San Diego General Services Building: San Diego Solar Power

The Port of San Diego General Services Building is one of 4 installations completed by Sullivan Solar Power for the San Diego Unified Port District. This installation was completed on a standing seam metal roof, which gave Sullivan Solar Power the ability to complete the install utilizing a proprietary attachment method, avoiding any roof penetrations. In addition, Sullivan was able to build a structure on an existing roof space that was able to house the 9 SMA inverters and overcome the lack of space issue faced at the location. Comprised of 270 Sharp solar modules which were manufactured in the United States, this system is expected to produce 93,125kWhrs per year. This design-build project was conducted in concert with Lopez Engineering and was the first major step by the Port of San Diego; towards embracing sustainable business practices. We used all stainless steel and anodized aluminum hardware to protect against coastal corrosion. The solar installation received a rebate from the California Solar Initiative that offset approximately 25% of the project costs. The project was delivered on time and on budget. Since this project, Sullivan has started two additional projects for the Port of San Diego at the new Broadway Cruise Terminal. We salute the Port for moving towards sustainability and leading by example.

On average, each year a solar energy system this size will:

  • Generate 86,978 to 115,970 kilowatt hours of clean renewable solar power.
  • Avoid the creation of 143,803 pounds of harmful carbon dioxide released into our air.
  • Provide the system owner with $25,513 in Solar Power Savings.
