Park City’s Municipal Government's Largest Solar System Goes Live
NORCROSS, Ga.--Suniva, Inc., a U.S. manufacturer of high-efficiency crystalline silicon solar cells and modules, today announced that its high-powered modules are powering Park City's Municipal Athletic & Recreation Center (MARC), an 85,000 sq. ft. recreation center for Park City residents, and the home to the popular Sundance Film Festival theatre. The ribbon cutting will take place later this afternoon.
Sourced by Russell Pacific, Alpenglow Solar engineered and installed the Suniva array using its premier Optimus module line. Solectria inverters and a monitoring system by SolrenView complete the system. This solar project is considered to be the largest within the municipal government and is slated to offset 20 percent of the building's energy consumption.
"Russell Pacific is proud to showcase USA-made Suniva panels for this Park City community project, the largest PV system in Summit County, Utah," said Jay Miles, vice president, distributed sales of Russell Pacific. "The aesthetically pleasing black frame module was selected due to its high visibility from the building entrance and road."
"It's exciting that Park City's leaders have pursued solar as part of their progressive strategy when considering energy savings and building enhancements," said Matt Card, vice president of global sales and marketing, Suniva. "We're pleased that our American products were of high value for this particular installation."
Suniva recently announced that it will be expanding its US manufacturing capacity. This announcement comes quickly after the opening of their second US manufacturing facility, located in Michigan.
