Rooftop Solar partnered with Loven contracting to install custom-built solar parking structures for Mohave Mental Health Clinic located in Kingman, AZ. Healthcare facilities are an excellent candidate to benefit from solar energy because their cost to utility companies is typically both expensive and consistent. To help make this project happen, Rooftop Solar worked with investment partners to provide a turnkey PPA project to the Mohave Mental Health Clinic. The goal was to bring value to MMHC in the form of shade structures for the customers and employees of the health center while also providing savings on electricity now and in the future.
Rooftop Solar was able to provide a proposal comprised of 140,760 Watts of solar power on beautifully designed parking canopies in the parking lot of the new facility in Kingman, AZ. The project was a good fit for the health center as it provided immediate positive cash flow for MMHC as well as substantial long term savings for the organization. As a non-profit, MMHC had no way of utilizing the Federal Tax Credit on its own. By implementing a PPA for the project, MMHC was still able to benefit without any capital outlay for the solar array because the project was funded by a third party investor.
By going solar, MMHC is showing that they are dedicated to keeping our community healthy and thriving. In doing so the business has also created an impressive investment that will eliminate its cost to APS and create a hedge against ever-increasing utility rates for the next 3 decades.
Installing commercial solar parking structures involves much more than just solar expertise. With over a decade of experience as a general contractor, our team ensured that this project met the unique structural requirements for the job. When executed correctly, parking structures are a great way to install solar panels for businesses because they power your business and provide covered parking for your patrons at the same time!
The 140.76 kW solar system is comprised of 552 solar panel modules and 12 solar string inverters that are connected to the grid. The system will provide the health care center with renewable power for the next 30 years and beyond. The long term savings for the project are projected to be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. The Mohave Mental Health Clinic will benefit from electricity savings while also making its mark as a renewable institution for now and the future.
In fact, over the life of this system, it is expected to produce roughly 6,720,000 kilowatt hours of electricity! That’s the environmental equivalent of offsetting 4,751 Metric Tons of Carbon Dioxide from emitting into our atmosphere, 5,235,290 lbs of coal from being burned, or 11,000 barrels of oil from being consumed (epa.gov). That’s an impact that MMHC can be proud to make–and their customers can be proud to support.
It is amazing to see another local business that is setting a positive example for our AZ community. We are proud to partner with both MMHC and their dedication to our Arizona Environment!
