Suniva, Inc., a U.S. manufacturer of high-efficiency
monocrystalline silicon solar cells and modules, today announced that the 365kW rooftop solar array at
USFloors is Powered by Suniva™. This Suniva array is now the largest single solar installation in the state.
Commissioned by United Renewable Energy, LLC (URE), the complete USFloors solar installation, a total
of three arrays, is expected to produce 560,000 kWh per year. Suniva also announced that the
company’s solar modules will power the visitor center at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park
in Marietta, Georgia.
To fund the project, USFloors took advantage of generous federal and state credits and incentives. A
recipient of a Georgia Environmental Facilities Authority (GEFA) Clean Energy Property Grant, USFloors
completed the project in November 2010 using Suniva modules and it’s now producing enough solar
energy to power 54 average American homes, offsetting 11,400 tons of CO2.
“USFloors’ devotion to clean renewable energy is most commendable; installations like this are leading
Georgia towards a more sustainable future,” said Bryan Ashley, chief marketing officer of Suniva, Inc.
“We’re equally excited to announce a new installation at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park.
The solar power produced will offset the AC unit in the visitor’s center for a national park that has more
than 1.4 million visitors annually. The U.S. Park Service is leading the way for many public and
commercial organizations with its commitment to clean energy and sustainability – and we are proud to
provide these local, significant installations with our homegrown Georgia technology.”
Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park’s solar installation produces 70 kW of power for the park’s
visitor center. The solar installation can be viewed by visitors, which will help promote the park’s
commitment to the environment and energy sustainability. The installation was completed by AEG
Power Solutions, a company specializing in end-to-end power supply systems and solutions.
