Suniva Inc., a metro-Atlanta based manufacturer of high-quality, high-efficiency crystalline silicon solar cells and modules, today announces its Buy America-compliant modules power the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) in West Palm Beach, Fla. The VAMC is one of numerous government facilities in the United States, Powered by Suniva, that is benefiting from a high-powered solar installation.

SCS provided full design, procurement, installation, utility coordination and commissioning of the system. All of the materials used on this project are BAA compliant.
“We are very pleased that South Coast Solar selected Suniva’s Buy America-compliant modules for this great facility,” said Matt Card, vice president global sales and marketing at Suniva. “High power and U.S. content are vital to fulfill U.S. government solar projects and we’re happy that our modules have provided a compelling solution.”
“SCS is very excited to have partnered with Suniva on such a high profile project. Any opportunity we have to incorporate high efficient technology produced by a US-based company is exciting to us. Suniva has been very supportive to South Coast Solar and we have future projects planned together,” said South Coast Solar CEO and Managing Partner, Robert Suggs.
