Kyocera Solar Project Helps Arizona Town Stabilize Electricity Costs
Kyocera Solar and the town of Parker, Arizona, recently commissioned a 175 kW solar energy project. The effort was developed and financed through Kyocera’s in-house power purchase agreement (PPA) program.
The project will include carport installations that will cover portions of the parking areas for Parker’s town hall, library and senior center and shade approximately 50 cars from solar heat while simultaneously harnessing the sun’s energy.
Photovoltaic Systems Manufacturing of Mesa, Arizona, will install 700 Kyocera high-efficiency solar panels and 12 SMA inverters. The installation will generate an estimated 300 MWh of electricity annually and offset about 80 percent of the electricity consumed by the three buildings.
The project benefits from a production-based incentive under the Arizona Public Service’s Solar for Schools and Government program. It represents the latest US solar project developed using Kyocera’s in-house financing programs.
