Higher-education provider American Public University System (APUS) has launched a 407kW solar array system in West Virginia.
The sizeable system consists of 1,671 high-performance solar panels from US-based SolarWorld and is a mounted installation on a carport structure at APUS’ headquarters.
Both designed and constructed by Mountain View Solar (MTVSolar), in West Virginia, the system is the contractor’s latest use of SolarWorld solar panels.
Mike McKechnie, president of MTVSolar, said, ‘Through this project, APUS sets a powerful example of institutional sustainability for its more than 100,000 students and for the community here in West Virginia.
‘This installation is an example of what education and renewable energy have in common – both are critical investments in our future.’
Kevin Kilkelly, president of SolarWorld Americas, added, ‘With a network of skilled, experienced authorised installers like MTVSolar on the ground in communities across the country, SolarWorld can ensure that our technology is deployed according to industry best practices in applications that provide a meaningful return on investment for the communities involved.’
