The 1.27MW solar project is Sullivan Solar Power’s largest to date.
In August 2016, Sullivan Solar Power completed the largest solar project in the company’s 12-year history – a 1.27MW-AC project across six schools for the Encinitas Union School District. The estimated 25-year savings from the combined 1.27 MW solar project will save the District $21,026,832.
“We are proud to help Encinitas Union School District declare energy independence, allowing the District to reinvest solar savings in their students, supporting a brighter future for our next generation,” said Daniel Sullivan, founder and president of Sullivan Solar Power.
“This is our largest solar project in our 12 years in business, which showcases the District’s leadership and commitment to reduce fossil fuel consumption.”
“While we expect to see financial savings, the installation of these solar panels allows us to do much more than merely save money on electricity,” said Dr. Timothy Baird, Encinitas Union School District Superintendent.
“We see this as an opportunity to lead by example with finding tangible ways to give our students a brighter future.”
Following a competitive selection process, Sullivan Solar Power was chosen to lead the design and installation of the solar projects for these schools. The solar systems consist of industry-leading Sunpower solar panels and American-made SMA America inverters, which will assist the District in achieving their clean energy goals. The installation will provide local greenhouse gas reduction benefits, offsetting over 3 million pounds of carbon dioxide each year.
