Delano Union School District Solar Installations (12 Sites)

IEC provided complete Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) services for installation of photovoltaic (PV) systems for ten (10) school sites and two (2) district-owned facilities at Delano Union School District (DUSD).

The installations consist of PV modules installed on both fixed-tilt ground mounted structures and elevated shade structures along with DC to AC inverters and other electrical, structural, and mechanical supporting equipment. The total installed solar capacity at the 12 sites is approximately 3,186 kilowatts (or 3.2 megawatts). These installations were funded by government low-interest bonds and California Solar Initiative (CSI) rebates. Construction began in winter 2012 and the systems became operational in August 2013.

The solar PV systems are expected to produce an estimated 4.4 million kWh per year. Any excess energy produced is exported to the grid and DUSD is compensated by PG&E for the time-of-use value of the energy through net-energy metering. The solar systems are expected to significantly reduce the District’s utility bill.

"The IEC Team exceeded our expectations for our PV Systems installed at the Delano Union School District by being reliable and attentive to our needs and installing a quality project. IEC made safety their number one priority throughout the entire construction project. Our School Board, Superintendent and District administration staff is very pleased with our solar arrays and the energy costs they are saving our District; and the shade that they provide are an added bonus for the staff and students. It was an honor and a pleasure working with IEC during the construction project, and I am looking forward to our next project.”
