Panasonic Eco Solutions North America and Coronal Management, LLC have announced completion of a 290.44 kW solar PV installation at the University of Colorado Boulder. It is the second PV solar installation on the Boulder campus.

CU-Boulder, like many schools, is finding it can save money by going solar. The new solar system will provide clean energy to power the university’s 11,064-seat multi-purpose arena, home to the Colorado Buffaloes basketball and volleyball teams. It is expected to reduce costs and grid electricity consumption, bringing CU-Boulder a step closer to its pledge of a carbon-neutral campus.  

“Given the positive outcome of our earlier, smaller scale renewable energy project with Panasonic, we decided to move forward with Panasonic on this larger installation,” said Moe Tabrizi, Director of Engineering and Sustainability at CU-Boulder. “Again, it was a well-organized implementation with progressive results.”

 

By combining their capabilities, Panasonic and Coronal can offer comprehensive end-to-end solutions for solar PV projects in the commercial, industrial, municipal, and small utility markets.
