ONE SUN INC. COMPLETES INSTALLATION OF 157.92 kW SOLAR PV SYSTEM FOR MARIN/SONOMA MOSQUITO & VECTOR CONTROL DISTRICT
One Sun Inc., a California-based provider of high-performance commercial solar pV systems, announced that it has completed the installation of a 157.92 kW solar PV system for the Marin/Sonoma Mosquito & Vector Control District (MSMVCD) at their headquarters in Cotati, CA. MSMVCD is a local public health agency serving the entire Marin/Sonoma area. It promotes health and well being by protecting the public from mosquito-borne disease through education, surveillance, source reduction and control.
The arrays include 658 high-performance solar modules installed on the main office building and the parking garage. The installation incorporates a monitoring system and an electronic security system for all modules. Federal, State and County funds and incentives contributed significantly to the financing. This system will provide 100 % of thedistrict’s electricity needs. It is estimated that the system will be paid for in approximately 10 years and, by converting to solar energy, MSMVCD estimates it will save close to $40,000 per year.
“At MSMVCD we are always looking for innovative ways to cut costs and better the environment,” said Steve Delucchi, Shop/Facilities Coordinator. “The installation of these solar panels will reduce our carbon footprint, save energy, and maintain MSMVCD as one of the most cutting edge mosquito districts in the State. ”
