Eaton to create USD$20 million solar power system


The project will be installed at the Albuquerque, New Mexico Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Health Care System and will include carport and roof-mounted arrays, as well as a building-integrated system to help reduce demand from the local utility grid.

"Eaton is now fully engaged in the sustainable energy market," said Paul Cody, vice president and general manager, Electrical Service and Systems Division, Eaton Corporation. "This major project will combine our expertise in electrical components and power distribution with comprehensive solar power system design and installation."

The contract is one of several recent agreements the company has reached with government organizations, including USD$8 million in electrical products and services for the San Antonio Military Medical Center on the Fort Sam Houston Army base in Texas, supplying hybrid electric power systems for 35 fuel-efficient shuttle buses purchased by the U.S. General Services Administration for use on U.S. military bases, and providing energy conservation at the United States Postal Service (USPS) Eastern Facilities Service Office at postal facilities in North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and South Carolina.
