Berlin, (PresseBox) - SOLON Corporation, the U.S. subsidiary of the Berlinbased solar energy company SOLON SE, will equip several schools in Arizona with photovoltaic systems by the end of 2010. The project capacity is planned to be a total of 8.7 MWp. The first subproject was completed last year with the commissioning of a 1 MWp system in December 2009. SOLON Corporation will plan and install the roofmounted solar power plants as part of two turnkey projects for two school districts in Phoenix, Arizona. It will also be in charge of operating and providing maintenance for the systems. The solar modules used for the project will be manufactured in SOLON's factory in Tucson, Arizona.
