Session Solar, Elite Solar wrap up 501-kW solar project in California
Aug 6, 2012 - US solar project developer Session Solar said today its partner Elite Solar had finalised the installation of a 501-kW solar power system at the Thermalito Water and Sewer District in Oroville, California.
The facility includes a 481-kW ground-mounted system at the district's treatment facility, and a 20-kW rooftop system at the district office. Together, installations are designed to cover 100% of the district's power consumption and save it some USD 3.8 million (EUR 3.1m) in electricity costs over the next 25 years.
Session Solar has secured financing, prepared the feasibility study and supplied the equipment for the project, while Elite Solar was in charge of the construction, grid connection and long-term maintenance of the solar facilities.
