SFCC's Santa Fe Higher Education Center Photovoltaic Array

The Photovoltaic Array will reduce the costs of energy consumption and provide hands-on learning opportunities for Solar Program students, faculty and staff. The installation at the Higher Education Center boasts two solar photovoltaic mounting systems:

  • A roof mounted 141-kilowatt system that consists of 432 SunPower 327 Watt photovoltaic modules
  • A 16-kilowatt carport array that provides parking for six cars
  • Data monitoring accessible to the public online
  • These arrays will generate about 70% of the electricity needs of the building

The project took place on 5 acres and consists of more than 2,000 solar panels.
