PCI Solar to build systems for California school district

Cinnabar school district, a public school district based in Sonoma County Calif., has chosen PCI Solar as the contractor to build a solar array for Cinnabar Elementary school. The decision to award PCI Solar was made through an RFP process hosted by Terra Verde Renewable Partners.

PCI SolarThe system to be constructed will be a double cantilever carport solar array in the elementary school parking lot. The carport structure, manufactured by MBL Energy, will provide much needed shade for staff vehicles and generate a significant amount of energy from the solar panels mounted above.  The system will utilize Trina 310 watt solar panels and Solectria 23kW inverters to generate electricity. Construction is slated to begin in the summer of 2016.
