Moody Air Force Base

Domestic Solar Project

Moody Air Force Base

Helios, in partnership with Schneider Electric, implemented a 2.5 MW on-site solar array. The solar installation was part of a base-wide energy efficiency and clean energy project.

Challenge

Design a value engineered solar solution for Schneider Electric and the U.S. Government.

  • Need 1: Meet megawatt hour production goals
  • Need 2: Deliver high-quality solar array against aggressive budget targets
  • Need 3: Maximize limited available and usable physical space on the facility
  • Need 4: Restore the site from an environmental perspective Need 4: Complete installation on an aggressive timeline during the COVID-19 global pandemic

The Helios Energy™ Impact

The U.S. Air Force was seeking to substantially reduce energy consumption and add clean, solar energy production for this historic and vital military installation. Key to the success of this initiative was a value-engineered 2.5 MW solar array, designed and built by the Helios Energy™ team in partnership with Schneider Electric.

Reducing 2,978,000 kWh per year on this project is equivalent to avoiding greenhouse gas emissions from 455 vehicles per year, 2,320,044 pounds of coal burned, and sequestering the amount of carbon equivalent to 2750 acres of U.S. forest per year.

The Helios Energy™ Advantage

When exploring partners to design, build and employ the 2.5 MW solar array, Schneider electric sought out Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses(SDVOSB). With a SDVOSB status and tenured solar PV expertise, partnership with Helios Energy™ became the logical next step. There are many veterans on the Helios Team, who with their civilian colleagues, are grateful to be delivering the solar PV system to the men and women of the famed Flying Tiger
