Lakeside, CA – 45.4kW
This community center offers a wide array of programs and services to the youth, adults, and seniors in the city and the surrounding areas. Due to its high public use, the facility consumes significant amount of power.
In order to best use the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) funding, the Department of Parks and Recreation decided to commission the installation of PV panels on the facility.
The 216-panel system installed on the metal seam roof provides significant portion of the electricity that the center needs. It also offers shading on the roof, which reduces the need for the air conditioning that further increases the utility savings as well as occupant comfort.
The system is expected to produce 1,906,800 kWh of power for the next 30 years.
