Lockheed Martin Orlando Solar Carport
Advanced Green Technologies completes 2 MW Solar Carport for Lockheed Martin in Orlando, Florida.
Advanced Green Technologies (AGT) completed a 2-megawatt solar carport at Lockheed Martin’s Rotary and Mission Systems facility parking lot in Orlando, Florida. The completed solar array is expected to produce 3.41 million kilowatt-hours of electricity per year and will save approximately $370,000 in energy costs annually.
AGT had previously partnered with Lockheed Martin to design and build the like-sized solar carport near Clearwater Florida. Completed in 2015 as the largest private solar array in the state, that initial solar carport has consistently achieved its energy production goals, according to Clint Sockman, vice president of Advanced Roofing and AGT.
“Creating high-performing, energy-saving projects of this scope with Lockheed Martin is tremendously exciting,” said Sockman. “As a corporate pioneer of solar carport use, Lockheed Martin is helping companies see a fresh, sustainable approach to benefit their businesses, their employees, and the environment,” he added.
Providing shelter for 592 cars, the new east Orlando solar carport’s four superstructures include 6,688 Hanwha SolarOne S-series solar modules and inverters by SunGrow. AGT broke ground for the fast-track, a multi-phased project in November 2016.
