Norcross, Georgia – Suniva Inc., a U.S. manufacturer of high-efficiency crystalline silicon solar cells and modules, announced that it is powering the largest rooftop solar system in Florida. The energy generated from the array, designed and installed by Tampa-based Solar Energy Management (SEM) with ARCO/Murray Construction Co. as the general contractor, is slated to decrease the facility’s power costs by 90%.
Suniva’s high-powered Optimus 330W modules were used for the 1.5MW solar installation for Great Bay Distributors, an independently family-owned business and Florida’s largest distributor of Anheuser-Busch products. The company will also use part of the 246,000ft2 commercial building to house their new headquarters. The Suniva modules are just one American component of this notable project as Great Bay CEO, Ron Petrini, insisted that the entire project be American-made.
