USA: Stellar Solar, one of California's leading commercial and residential solar integrators since 1998, added to their impressive resume of high profile commercial projects with the recent activation of a solar carport system that is part of Cedars-Sinai's new Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion.
The system incorporates 1,190
240-watt panels in multiple locations atop the parking structure adjacent to the pavilion. Graycor Construction Company, the general contractor on the project, selected Stellar Solar based on their experience with large scale carports.
The solar installation is one of many "green" aspects of the design of the Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion, which is designed to meet the requirements of a Gold Certified structure under the US Green Building Council LEED Program.
"The system installed by Stellar Solar is an important part of the building's focus on environmental sustainability," said Peter Golerkansky, associate director of Engineering at Cedars-Sinai. Stellar Solar, which designed and installed the system for Graycor Construction Company and Cedars-Sinai, is a global provider of turn-key solar energy solutions.
Kent Harle, founder and CEO of Stellar Solar said: "This was a very exciting project to be a part of. Working with two internationally respected brands like Graycor Construction Company and Cedars-Sinai was a great experience. Both of those organizations are demonstrating leadership when it comes to business practices that are sustainable and fiscally prudent."
Besides Cedars-Sinai, Stellar Solar has completed commercial solar installations for U.S. Foodservice, Salk Institute, Vandenberg Air Force Base, San Diego Cardiac Center, City of Tustin and Los Angeles Mission College in addition to over 800 residential installations.
