The 274 kilowatt solar parking shade structure and rooftop systems are composed of 1,335 photovoltaic (PV) modules that will provide an estimated 33 percent of all energy used at HSSV's Animal Community Center, thus creating significant energy savings for the lifetime of the system, says the company.
In fiscal year 2011, HSSV says it expects the solar installation to help the organization save up to USD$50,000 in energy costs.
Through a Solar Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Tioga Energy, HSSV was able to install the solar project without expending any upfront capital.
The solar electric energy system is owned and operated by Tioga Energy, a leading provider of renewable energy services to commercial, government and non-profit institutions.
Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV) is an independent, non-profit agency offering quality adoptions, medical care, education programs and pet care services.
