The Los Angeles Air Force Base recently chose Solar Electrical Systems to install two large solar shadeports to cut their annual electric bills by $70,000. Solar Electrical Systems developed a new panelizing procedure that was done in the module manufacturing factory (7 modules combined into one long panel) and shipped pre-assembled directly to the site. Each pre-assembled panel arrived pre-wired, requiring just two electrical connections. This greatly simplified the installation, reducing on-site labor costs by 20-30%. The three-phase projects was completed ahead of schedule in three months. It provides shade for over 200 cars and will result in over $12.5 million dollars in electric savings over 30 years.
