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