Sunworks Developing 1.5 MW Solar Project with Battery Storage
Sunworks Inc. is building a new 1.5 MW solar power and battery storage project for Kingston Technology, a manufacturer of memory products and technology solutions for PCs, servers, smart phones, cameras and other electronic devices.
Construction of the new project is expected to commence at Kingston’s corporate headquarters in Fountain Valley, Calif., in mid-2019 after required utility company approvals. It will include a 730 kW ballast roof mount system and a 772 kW solar carport structure. In addition, Sunworks will integrate a NantEnergy energy storage system that will comprise 10 30 kW inverters, 10 40 kWh battery banks and control management software.
“Kingston Technology is committed to innovative technology and has consistently set the industry standards for quality and reliability while maintaining focus on social responsibility,” says Sunworks CEO Chuck Cargile. “ Solar power is a natural way for Kingston to reduce energy costs, enhance environmental efficiency and raise the bar for social responsibility and sustainability.”
“We selected Sunworks based on the company’s proven experience, deep industry expertise and solid reputation in the solar industry,” remarks Larry Gonzales, Kingston Technology’s vice president of administration. “Their solution matches well with our requirements for implementing solar power, and we look forward to working with them to implement a comprehensive power solution that is environmentally considerate.”
