It’s reassuring to know that the military recognizes the value of solar energy.
Oceanside, CA (PRWEB) April 15, 2013
Camp Pendleton recently energized two more solar power systems at Edson Range and Chappo Dining facilities in a move towards the use of more renewable energy on base. The 221 kilowatt and 125 kilowatt systems, respectively, installed by local turn-key solar firm Sullivan Solar Power will save the military base hundreds of thousands of dollars’ in electricity costs over the life time of the system. In conjunction with the economic advantages, the array will also provide a significant environmental impact by eliminating 13 million pounds of CO2 emissions over the warranty period of the solar panels.
“Camp Pendleton should be recognized as a leader in utilizing renewable energy opportunities. Between this solar installation and those completed within the last year, it’s obvious that the base is committed to developing a renewable future for coming generations,” said Daniel Sullivan, Founder and President of Sullivan Solar Power. “It’s reassuring to know that the military recognizes the value of solar energy.”
The installation has been a boost for the local and national economy creating six new prevailing-wage jobs within Sullivan Solar Power. The installation firm employs International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) state certified electricians as their photovoltaic installers. Furthermore, the installation utilized only American-made products. The military base’s newly sustainable dining facilities are powered by 1,666 American-made Sharp 240-watt solar modules.
Camp Pendleton has made a noticeable effort over the last few years to ensure green initiatives are included in the maintenance and renovation plans of the base’s facilities. The completion of the project is yet another step toward a successful and sustainable society.
