Fontana Storage Facility

When the general contractor of a new storage facility in Fontana incorporated photovoltaics into the construction design package, Sullivan Solar Power was contracted to provide the installation. This roof-mounted system is secured to the standing-seam metal roof via a proprietary attachment method. Consisting of (405) Sharp solar modules, which are manufactured in the United States, this system is expected to produce 142,444 kWhrs per year. The solar panel system is optimized as it is facing south at latitude tilt and as such, is performing above expectations for kilowatt-hour yield. Sullivan has worked with the client to restructure the facility's electrical rate to one that is more conducive to solar generation. As a result the electric bill for this facility will be completed eliminated. The client is receiving rebatesfrom the California Solar Initiativepaid over a five year period based on production from the solar PV system worth nearly 20% of the net cost. In addition, the client received a tax credit worth 30% of the net cost and will be able to depreciation the solar equipment on an accelerated schedule. Sullivan projects the system willpay for itself in just over 5 years.

Performance

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

  • Generate 111,000 to 148,000 kilowatt hours of clean renewable solar power.
  • Avoid the creation of 183,520 pounds of harmful carbon dioxide released into our air.
  • Provide the system owner with $32,560 in Solar Power Savings.
