Largest solar installation in the United States sprouts up in Phoenix
It sure seems like the world has realized the potential of generating solar energy at parking lots. The largest solar energy generating carport in the United States has completed its first phase of installation and is located at the Carl T. Hayden Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center in Phoenix. Installed by SunWize Systems this 4.45 megawatt system will be completed in 2012. The Kingston based firm has previously worked with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, installing a 337 kilowatt system at the Dallas Medical Center and a 309 kilowatt system at the Jerry L. Pettis VA Hospital in Loma Linda, California.
Using 18,000 Samsung and Sanyo solar panels, this parking lot will help bring in some green energy in Phoenix
