Larry D. Johnson Community Center, Sparks, Nevada

This project started with a study of the building. PK Electrical, Inc. evaluated the building to identify if it was a candidate for roof-mounted solar panels. We reviewed panel placement, inverter location and how the photovoltaic system could be incorporated into the existing electrical system. Once the building met the criteria, we transitioned to the design of the photovoltaic system. A 30KW DC photovoltaic system was installed on the south facing portion of the flat roof. Cost of this project is $400,000.
