Suntech (STP) Will Power Largest Building Mounted PV Project in Arizona

Suntech (STP) has announced that it will provide 1.6 MW of solar panels to Sun Devil Solar LLC, a subsidiary of Integrys Energy Services for its project with Arizona State University.  ASU will install the modules on top of two parking structures in the middle of campus and is to be completed by the end of this year.  It’s expected to produce enough electricity to power 3680 computers each year (the equivalent of 260 households)

“We are pleased our ground-breaking project will be powered by Suntech solar panels. Suntech’s high quality panels will ensure ASU is able to reap the benefits of clean, green solar energy for many years to come,” said Jonathan Fink, Director of the Global Institute of Sustainability and University Sustainability Officer at ASU. “We believe in the potential of solar to become a cost-effective energy solution and hope that ASU’s large solar installation and solar R&D initiatives will encourage further solar adoption throughout Arizona and at other universities throughout the U.S.”
