Project Description:
Earthwell worked collaboratively on the Camp Lejeune Child Development Center located in Jacksonville, North Carolina. The project consisted of a approximately 100 kW roof mount solar array and a solar thermal hot water system that offset 50% of the Day Care’s domestic hot water usage. In addition, a solar carport was constructed that provided covered parking for nearly 100 vehicles. The combined systems provides 95% of the buildings electrical needs.

 

Improvements:

  • (845) Sharp 235 w modules
  • (2) Satcon 100 kW Solstice Inverters utilize string-level maximum power tracking
  • (5) Alternative Energy Technologies (AET) solar panels

Facts:

  • 50 percent Domestic Hot Water energy usage offset by Solar Thermal System
  • Provides 95 percent of building energy usage
  • Project Dollar Amount: $1,335,191
  • Technical Design Personnel: David Underwood (Designer, Estimator); Greg Lutz (Project Supervisor)
