- Case Study
The solar system installed at U.S. Foodservice will generate 1,380,227kWh/year, equivalent to an annual energy consumption of about 194 homes in California.
April 20, 2011 – DelSolar completed a 1MW solar PV project for U.S. Foodservice Inc in Livermore, CA, which is the first one in a series of similar projects for the national food distribution company. The solar system installed at U.S. Foodservice’s San Francisco Distribution Center utilized 4,354 pieces of DelSolar’s D6P230A3E multi-crystalline 230Wp PV module. It included a 759kW rooftop section and a 241kW carport, which will together generate approximately 1,380,227kWh/year, equivalent to an annual energy consumption of about 194 homes in California. The second PV project is expected to take place at a different site later this year. Stephen Torres, Director of DelSolar USA added, “ The PV project at U.S. Foodservice’s San Francisco Distribution Center validated DelSolar’s turn-key capabilities for large commercial and utility-scale projects, as well as the broad acceptance of our c-Si technologies in the US market. We are excited about the opportunity to deploy additional large-scale solar solutions at other US Foodservice facilities over the next 12 months.” The project was partially funded thru the California Solar Initiative (CSI) incentive program. The Livermore project created over 70 jobs in construction and installation related services, helping to foster the recovery of local economy.
