SOLON Completes 1.9 MW of Solar School Projects in Arizona

SOLON Corporation has announced the completion of 1.92 MW of solar systems for three Arizona school districts - Liberty Unified School District, Ft. Huachuca School District and Pima County Joint Technical Education District (JTED). The systems are comprised of solar canopies and rooftop systems covering nine campuses and were all commissioned at the end of 2013. 1.2 MW of canopy systems are deployed over four campuses in the Liberty Unified School District, located in Buckeye, AZ; 465 kW of canopy and rooftop systems are spread over two campuses in the Ft. Huachuca district located in Sierra Vista, AZ; and 257 kW of canopy systems are installed over three JTED campuses, located in Tucson, AZ. SOLON designed, engineered, constructed, arranged financing, and commissioned all of the systems. As a full-service provider, SOLON will also continue to operate and maintain the systems.

SOLON Corporation Appoints John Kintz as Managing Director and Jeff Calabro as Senior Director

SOLON Corporation announced appointment of John Kintz as managing director of the project finance group and Jeff Calabro as senior director of procurement and acquisitions. John Kintz is responsible for commercial and utility-scale solar project financings. Before joining SOLON, Kintz was a director of project finance at SunPower Corporation, where he negotiated, arranged and closed over 400 megawatts of solar transactions in North America. Calabro was senior director of procurement and asset management at PsomasFMG prior to SOLON. He has over fourteen years experience in the photovoltaic industry and has held positions in sales, procurement, product management, operation start-up, project management and project development. He has effectively negotiated multi-million dollar supply agreements and over the course of his career has been directly involved with the procurement of over 300 MW of PV module supply.

SOLON Corporation Completes Five MW Prairie Fire Solar Plant

SOLON Corporation announced the completion of the 5 megawatt (MW) Prairie Fire Solar Plant in Tucson, Arizona, for Tucson Electric Power (TEP). The fixed-tilt system was designed and constructed by SOLON. TEP will own and operate the solar production facility. The 5 MW system spans 28 acres and is composed of more than 17,000 solar panels. The construction of the system, located near East Valencia and East Old Vail roads, took just 10 weeks and created the equivalent of 75 full-time local jobs. Over the course of a year, the Prairie Fire array is expected to produce approximately 9,000 megawatt hours (MWh), enough to power more than 850 homes. By the end of 2013, TEP expects to have more than 250 MW of renewable generating capacity, enough energy to power the equivalent of approximately 50,000 homes. With the activation of Prairie Fire, SOLON now has nearly 65 MW of solar resources installed and operating just in the state of Arizona.
