Camp Pendleton Dining Facilities: Carport Solar Power

The Camp Pendleton Dining Facilities project consists of two sites located at the new Edson Range and Chappo dining halls. Each of these systems were installed on carport structures, but were unique to each site. At Chappo, Sullivan Solar Power, in conjunction with other sub-contractors, built the system on the third floor of a new parking garage. Through-out the process of construction, Sullivan was onsite carefully planning and making sure all aspects of the system were expertly integrated into the structure, to ensure a clean and aesthetically-pleasing end product. Edson Range consists of 4 large carports located at the ground level parking lot. Again, Sullivan Solar Power was onsite during each phase of the construction process, making sure all the necessary conduits and equipment were in place for a clean installation. The Edson Range arrays, comprised of 1064 Sharp solar modules, which were manufactured in the United States, are expected to produce 384,622 kWhrs per year. The Chappo Facility system, comprised of 602 Sharp solar modules, which were manufactured in the United States, this system is expected to produce 221,870 kWhrs per year.

Performance

This NAVFAC solar power installation by Sullivan Solar Power is part of the solar energy revolution and generating clean, renewable electricity for Whiting Turner. On average, each year a solar energy system this size will:

  • Generate 322,800 to 430,400 kilowatt hours of clean renewable solar power.
  • Avoid the creation of 533,696 pounds of harmful carbon dioxide released into our air.
  • Provide the system owner with $94,688 in Solar Power Savings.
