Three Solar Projects Commissioned for City of Somerton, Arizona
GreenVoltsÂ®, Inc., provider of the industryâ€™s first and only complete and fully integrated solar system, today announced the commissioning of three solar projects for the City of Somerton, Arizona. Chosen from a competitive bidding process that considered all renewable technologies, GreenVolts systems provide 416 kW of power required for Somertonâ€™s water treatment, public safety and water supply applications.
â€œOur experience with MAC Electric and GreenVolts has been very positive. In fact, we have recently approved yet another project with GreenVolts and MAC Electric.â€
â€œThe City of Somertonâ€™s vision of a comprehensive renewable energy solution in their community is industry leading and includes multiple applications to meet the Cityâ€™s needs,â€ said David Gudmundson, president and CEO of GreenVolts. â€œOur vision is complementary to theirs in that GreenVolts provides a complete and fully integrated system adaptable to multiple applications and ideal for water treatment, commercial and industrial buildings, parking lots, water supply, and many others.â€
â€œThese solar projects are the result of the City of Somertonâ€™s commitment to providing clean, dependable, affordable energy that will help our economy and benefit our community for many years into the future,â€ said Martin Porchas, Mayor of the City of Somerton. â€œOur experience with MAC Electric and GreenVolts has been very positive. In fact, we have recently approved yet another project with GreenVolts and MAC Electric.â€
The City of Somerton is on the leading edge of a trend toward high performance, high yield solar systems. Solar industry analysts predict that growth will be highest in high DNI (direct normal irradiance, a measure of amount of strong, direct sun) areas. GreenVolts systems perform best in these regions, such as the Southwest United States, when compared to other technologies. GreenVolts has focused on serving customers in this area, now adding the City of Somerton to several installations recently completed in Arizona, New Mexico, and California.
â€œGreenVolts offers a complete system. It eliminates the need for integration, simplifies installation, speeds construction, and lowers costs,â€ said Ari Harrington, president of MAC Electric, Inc. â€œISISÂ®, which is included with the system to manage this portfolio of installations, is unlike any other energy management software available and will make O&M easier and more efficient.â€
