Pasadena, California: Run on Sun announced today that it has been selected to install a 54 kilowatt solar power system on top of the Fran Norris Scoble Performing Arts Center (PAC) on the Pasadena campus of the Westridge School for Girls. When installation is complete next Spring, the system will consist of 216, 250-Watt solar panels manufactured by LG Electronics, and an equal number of micro-inverters made by Enphase Energy.
“We are extremely gratified to have been chosen by Westridge to perform this installation,” said Jim Jenal, Founder & CEO of Run on Sun. “Westridge has already demonstrated its commitment to a green campus by the addition of their new science building which was recently certified LEED Platinum. Now, with this addition of a 54 kW solar power system on the PAC, they will be taking another giant step forward toward being a truly earth-friendly campus – and they will be saving money at the same time.”
In addition to dramatically cutting the energy needs of the PAC, the Run on Sun solar power system will provide near real-time feedback on the system’s performance down to the individual solar panel level. “Students will be able to learn from this system at the same time that the school benefits economically from the energy produced,” said Jenal. “This is a great way to enhance the students’ education by letting them explore the workings of solar power – a renewable source of energy that will be a large part of their lives in the years ahead.”
