Sierra College solar installation goes live!!!

Update:

This past Monday the first phase of Sierra College’s 1.8 megawatt installation went live and is producing energy.

Sierra College has just completed the installation of over 3700 solar panels on the Rocklin campus.  The installation was done as part of a power purchase agreement with Borrego Solar and the installation was completed by Collins Electric.  The main feature of the installation was the construction of carport parking structures that will provide: 304 covered parking spaces; almost 60,000 sq ft of shade; and provide almost 900 KW of power.

The installation will provide an on-site demonstration area for commercial level solar for Sierra College’s award winning solar program.  Additionally, two Sierra College students were hired to be part of the installation team.

A second phase of the project will begin at Sierra’s Nevada County Campus and when fully complete the project will provide the college with 1.8 megawatts of power.  In addition to providing clean energy this system clearly shows Sierra College’s commitment to sustainability.
