Seattle Mariners Install Solar at Training Facility
The Seattle Mariners spring training facility in Peoria, Ariz., now boasts a solar rooftop and carport system.
Healthy Planet Partners developed and financed the project with partner Kyocera Solar, which provided engineering and project management support as well as acting as a finance partner. Sky Engineering and Construction built the system at the Peoria Sports Complex, using Kyocera’s solar modules.
The 345 kW solar array will generate about 529 MWh annually. The 1,380 Kyocera KU250 modules will also provide shade to 96 vehicles at the complex.
HPP financed, owns, and operates the solar array, and the Seattle Mariners will host the system under a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA). The project benefits from a Production Based Incentive under the Arizona Public Service Schools & Governments Program.
The new solar installation reinforces environmental efforts of the Mariners, which have resulted in savings of more than $1.75 million in electricity, natural gas, water, and sewer charges since 2006, according to the organization.
