Solar Energy Powers Marin Airporter San Rafael Station
Novato- and Sonoma-based SolarCraft announced the design and installation of a 34.5 kW solar electric system at the Marin Airporter Station in San Rafael, California. The Central Marin hub can now capture the sun’s energy to power its operations.
The 34.5 kW solar electric system at Marin Airporter San Rafael utilizes 144 Sharp 240-watt solar panels and covers over 2,526 square feet. The system is mounted on the corrugated steel roof with ProSolar flush mount racking for a sleek, low-profile solar installation.
The system’s PV panels convert sunlight directly into electricity and will generate approximately 45,972 kilowatt hours of energy annually, offsetting over 80% of the facility’s yearly energy consumption.
Solar power generated from the Marin Airporter’s system can produce enough electricity to power over 17 homes. It will spare the air more than 30 tons of harmful greenhouse gases annually and over the next 30 years, the air pollution saved will be equivalent to eliminating over 2 million miles of driving.
