Fremont, Calif., July 13, 2011 – DelSolar Development USA, a subsidiary of DelSolar Co. Ltd., completed a 1.15 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) project for U.S. Foodservice in La Mirada, CA, which is currently the largest in a series of similar projects for the broadline food distributor.
The solar system installed at U.S. Foodservice-Los Angeles, which was co-developed with SunExpress, utilized 4,998 pieces of DelSolar's D6P230A3E multi-crystalline 230Wp PV module. It included a 1,124 kW rooftop section, and two canopies of 16 kW and 10kW, which will together generate approximately 1,656,774 kWh/year, equivalent to the annual energy consumption of about 150 U.S. homes.
"U.S. Foodservice is committed to ensuring our company, products, services and partnerships make a credible, honest and robust contribution towards creating a sustainable economy," said Gene Steffes, division president, U.S. Foodservice-Los Angeles. "We are safeguarding the environment, minimizing waste, conserving resources, recycling materials and providing customers with environmentally preferable products. The solar panel installation is both good for business and the right thing to do."
U.S. Foodservice is one of America's leading foodservice distributors, providing the finest quality food and related products to more than 250,000 customers, including independent restaurants, government operations, healthcare and hospitality entities, educational institutions and prominent multi-unit restaurant companies.
Stephen Torres, Director of DelSolar Development USA added, "This is the largest PV Solar turn-key solution that DelSolar has completed in the North America, and the largest solar installation at any U.S. Foodservice facility.
DelSolar continues to demonstrate its turn-key capabilities in large commercial and utility-scale projects, as well as the advantages of its vertically integrated solution model."
The project was partially funded thru the California Solar Initiative (CSI) incentive program. The La Mirada project created over 50 jobs in construction and installation related services, helping to foster the recovery of local economy.
