Suniva announces that its high-efficiency crystalline silicon solar cells and modules are powering the Veterans Health Care System of the Ozarks, in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The 321 kW Suniva array consists of three parking canopies.

The military continues to be a major solar adopter, both in the field and when veterans return home. 

This includes a large and growing list of Veteran’s Administration facilities going solar across the United States. Many of them are part of the public sector projects portfolio of Suniva, Inc., an Atlanta-based manufacturer of high-efficiency crystalline silicon solar cells and modules. Today, the company announced that its modules power the Veterans Health Care System of the Ozarks, in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

 

The 321 kW Buy America–compliant Suniva array consists of three parking canopies, covering 100 parking spaces with power feeding directly into the primary distribution loop for the facility. The installation was engineered and installed by Meridian Solar, complete with a Solectria 266 kW inverter and a Draker monitoring system. A weather station and SCADA controls enhance the system, providing real-time information.

 

“We are delighted that Meridian Solar chose Suniva’s Buy America–compliant modules for this Veteran facility,” said Matt Card, vice president global sales and marketing at Suniva, in a statement today. “Our high-powered modules are proving more valuable than ever before as the government’s renewable energy objective continues to be achieved.”

 

“Meridian was eager to work with Suniva on this government project. High-quality, Buy America–compliant modules are a requirement for most of our federal projects, so having a partnership with Suniva has proven very beneficial,” said Andrew McCalla, president and founder at Meridian Solar.
