Clearwater, FL (Vocus/PRWEB) March 16, 2011
The Churchill Companies, a financier of commercial real estate and renewable energy installations, announces the closing of a solar power transaction for University of Delaware (UD) in Newark, Delaware.
Churchill provided $4.4 million in construction financing for roof mount PV solar panels on seven campus buildings. The solar array atop the Delaware Field House, the campus’ athletic complex, becomes the state’s largest single solar energy system. The entire photovoltaic energy system has the capacity to produce a total of 1,035,000-kilowatt hours of electricity annually, which is expected to reduce UD’s carbon footprint by 1.8 million pounds of carbon dioxide.
The University is designated by the U.S. Department of Energy as a 'national center of excellence' in solar electric power. In the early 1990s, the U.S. government named UD a "Center for Excellence" in solar education and research. The University's solar program started in the early 1970s.
“Churchill is seeing a lot of activity in the renewable market and financing this project is a testament to our ability to be competitive as well as trusted to deliver on key installations,” stated Keith Gloeckl, Churchill Chief Executive Officer and President.
