Camp Pendleton enhances the Military's efforts to produce clean energy
SAN DIEGO, CA (April 18, 2012) – San Diego's largest military training facility has enlisted one of the county's fastest growing privately-held solar energy companies, Sullivan Solar Power, to install a 345,9000kW solar power system on two of the base's shared dining facilities. The construction on this installation began shortly after Sullivan Solar Power completed construction on the 207,000 Watt photovoltaic system atop four of the base's housing facility buildings, the Bachelor Enlisted Quarters.
The Military's clean energy efforts are exhibited in the installations of these solar power systems, with Camp Pendleton at the forefront of these undertakings. The installed renewable energy system on the base's Bachelor Enlisted Quarters is projected to reduce approximately 392,160 pounds of polluting carbon emissions each year and will save Camp Pendleton tens of thousands of dollars' worth of electricity costs with in the first year of operation.
"We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with the Hensel Phelps Soltek Joint Venture team to develop this renewable energy powerhouse. The savings from this project will be extremely beneficial, both environmentally and monetarily," said Daniel Sullivan, founder and President of Sullivan Solar Power, "This solar installation displays the military's commitment to declaring energy independence."
The military base's greenest living quarters are powered with 1,024 American-made Sharp solar panels. The American-made products used for the project support our local and national economy. At annual peak production, the panels will produce enough energy to power over 23,000 homes for an entire day.
Both this installation, and the photovoltaic system that is in production on the Camp Pendleton dining facilities, are positively impacting the local community and its residents. Three new local prevailing-wage jobs were created within Sullivan Solar Power for these projects.
