1.56 MW PV system completed at Cincinnati Zoo


The parking-lot canopy solar system, which comprises 15 arrays, is made up of 6,400 SolarWorld photovoltaic panels. It was developed, engineered and installed by Melink Corp., and covers 800 of the 1,000 parking spaces in the zoo’s main parking lot.

Overall, the system is expected to provide about 20 percent of the zoo’s power needs.

"SolarWorld was an excellent fit for the Cincinnati Zoo project," commented David Boezi, vice president of operations for Melink. "The company’s fully vertically integrated American manufacturing and its technology’s strong technical performance in independent testing were key decision points for us."
