Borrego Solar Awarded GSA Contract to Provide Solar Installation Services to Federal Government

New Contract Strengthens Company's Position in Growing Federal and Military Market

SAN DIEGO--Borrego Solar Systems, Inc., a leading designer, installer and financier of grid-tied solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, today announced that it was awarded a contract by the General Services Administration (GSA). Through the contract, Borrego Solar is now certified to provide its solar installation services to federal agencies. The contract expands Borrego Solar's foothold in the growing federal and military solar installation market.


"This contract win is good news for Borrego Solar, as it provides us more opportunities to partner with federal agencies and develop cost-effective solar installations"

"This contract win is good news for Borrego Solar, as it provides us more opportunities to partner with federal agencies and develop cost-effective solar installations," said Borrego Solar CEO Mike Hall. "Solar energy is a smart investment for the federal government, and we look forward to helping more agencies reduce their energy consumption and achieve energy independence through our financing, design and installation services."

In addition to the GSA schedule award, Borrego Solar offers a power purchase agreement (PPA), a contract where Borrego Solar absorbs the costs of design, construction, operation, and maintenance of a solar energy system and then sells the energy back to federal facility managers at a predetermined rate. It allows federal agencies to achieve renewable energy goals and save on operational costs, with zero up-front investment.

Borrego Solar's solar installation services are in increased demand, particularly with the Department of Defense (DoD), which is expected to continue to increase spending on renewable energy, reaching $10 billion annually by 2030, according to Pike Research. The GSA contract win will help bolster Borrego Solar's growing federal portfolio, which includes a nearly one megawatt (MW) solar project at the Point Loma Navy Base in San Diego bay and a 3.4 MW project at Edwards Air Force Base.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
