Southern California renewable energy firm Sullivan Solar Power announced that it has completed a a 93.202 kW rooftop solar array on the new San Diego State University (SDSU) Conrad Prebys Aztec Student Union Center.

Sullivan Solar Power has installed seven solar PV projects for the university. This project highlights a new legacy of green building on campus, where the new Student Union Center is the first LEED Platinum building.

 

The sustainability movement on the SDSU campus was initiated by students and has been aided by collaboration with administration and campus partners. Sullivan Solar Power is proud to be part of that and to help SDSU reach its sustainability goals.

 

“San Diego State University’s commitment to sustainability is a model for all other universities in California,” said Daniel Sullivan, president and founder of Sullivan Solar Power, in a press release. “The efforts on behalf of the students and facility to become net energy zero by 2020 is a very ambitious goal, and we plan on helping SDSU achieve that goal.”

 

The new solar PV system uses 434 locally manufactured Kyocera solar panels and an Advanced Energy inverter. The system has already produced enough solar to offset 22,509 pounds of carbon dioxide.

 

“The solar panels on top of the Conrad Prebys Aztec Student Union symbolize SDSU students’ commitment to renewable and clean energy,” said Morgan Chan, SDSU Associated Students Vice President of University Affairs.
