This $4.1 million fast-track, design-build project called for Stronghold Engineering, Inc. to install multiple solar photovoltaic power systems (SPVPS) at the Naval Base located in China Lake. The SPVPS’s were installed on the roofs of three (3) buildings, which included demolition and replacement of each of the roofs. The SPVPS supplies power to the building and feeds energy back into the power grid if, and when, there is an excess of electricity produced. The photovoltaic modules generate more than 474,000kW annually. The project design was selected for its high performance, efficiency and low cost, as well as, the manufacturer’s long standing track record, and reputation for high quality and long life cycle.
