Suniva powers 1 MW solar farm at Chattanooga Airport

By Greentech Lead Team: Suniva, a
manufacturer of crystalline silicon solar cells and modules, is powering a 1
megawatt (MW) solar farm at the Chattanooga Airport.

It will be implemented by Inman
Solar. The 1 MW installation is the first phase of a 3MW project by the
Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport Authority (CMAA), designed to reduce
pollution, waste and energy consumption.

“Building a solar farm that
generates enough power for an entire airport to become energy self-sufficient
is an ambitious project. A key element of this is ensuring that the technology
we use is of the highest caliber. Suniva’s solar modules have some of the
highest quality of any solar product on the market, helping us generate more
power with a reduced footprint. We’re excited to embark on the first phase and
look forward to finalizing the project,” said Mark Jones, Inman Solar.

Since December, the solar farm has
generated nearly 90,000 kilowatt hours of electricity with no pollution.

“This is the first step in a
historic project that will provide a clean and renewable source of energy on
land that was unusable for aviation. The solar plant is representative of the
type of innovation that will help deliver a more sustainable future for
Tennessee and the U.S,” said John Baumstark, chief executive officer of Suniva

Suniva’s modules carry a 10 year workmanship
guarantee and a 25 year linear power performance warranty, assuring that solar
module power output shall not decrease by more than 0.7 percent per year after
the initial year of service. Suniva Optimus modules contain more than 80
percent U.S. content and comply with “Buy American” requirements.
