Yoel Hanegbi led his team with installing "peel & stick" adhesive photovoltaic panels on the roof of Cumberland Elementary in Sunnyvale, California.
Eshone Energy, working as the PV installer with Bruns Belmont Construction, Inc. , broke ground in August and the 14.7 kW roof-mounted solar system was up and officially running by September 1st. This was a small solar project that nevertheless, generated a lot of excitement for the students and the surrounding community; so much so that a similar Solar Project was initiated for Lakewood Elementary PV System, also in Sunnyvale.
Here are a few shots of our recently installed Solar Power System on the roof of Cumberland Elementary School.
- 14.7 kW Photovoltaic (PV) system
- Eliminates 25,000 lbs of CO2 annually
- Energy Output: 23,000 kWh
- 108 Adhesive Unisolar panels of the Amorphous type
- 3 inverters from SMA
- Angle of the panels: 20 degrees
- Project was completed in 4 weeks
Students especially enjoy going online to check the energy data in real time through the Fat Spaniel Monitoring System.
SOLAR POWER NOW for Schools Going Solar. That's being SMART SOLAR TOGETHER.
