S-Energy America Brings Clean Renewable Solar Power To Los Angeles County Schools

published: 2014-12-10 15:09

S-Energy America, a subsidy of Korean solar PV module manufacturer S-Energy®, has completed the installation and grid connection of 3.33 MW of solar carport structures at 2 Los Angeles County, California school districts by providing CVD-free modules.

S-Energy contracted Gehrlicher Solar America, an EPC firm, to install over 7,000 S-Energy PC8 72-cell modules at 12 school facilities within the Lynwood Unified School District. Another 4,400 S-Energy high-performance solar modules were installed at 6 school facilities within the Bassett Unified School District in the City of La Puente. The solar installations will offset more than 50% of each school's electricity usage and will ensure a constant, low-cost source of clean energy via a power performance agreement between S-Energy America and the School Districts. Key Equipment Finance, a division of KeyBank National Association, provided additional financing for the project.

"The solar panels that are now at many of the schools within our district are not only a commitment to the environment in which our families live," said Peter Wong, Chief Business Official of the Lynwood Unified School District. "They also help fulfill our goal to lower operational costs and put more of our taxpayer's funds directly into the classroom."

S-Energy Co., Ltd., formed as a spin-off of Samsung Electronics, is one of the global solar industry's oldest and most experienced module manufacturers – continuously building PV modules since 1994.
