SOLAR PROJECT EXPERIENCE
BACK TO PROJECT EXPERIENCE PAGE
IEC provided complete Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) services for installation of photovoltaic (PV) systems at two (2) school sites within the Middletown Union School District (MUSD). 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 two sites is approximately 115 kilowatts (or .12 megawatts). These installations were funded by government low-interest bonds and California Solar Initiative (CSI) rebates. Construction began in 2012 and the systems will be operational in January 2014. The solar PV systems are expected to produce an estimated 370,000 kWh per year. Any excess energy produced is exported to the grid and MUSD 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.
