StreetInsider.com – Hebrew Academy Partners with SharpUSA and HelioPower…
Sharp Electronics Corporation’s Solar Energy Solutions Group, based near the school in Huntington Beach, and HelioPower worked together with the Hebrew Academy on the solar energy aspect of the school’s Go Green program. A portion of the Karp Federation Challenge Grant and a generous private donation made the solar panels possible. The panels are situated on south facing roofs with over 98% efficiency. The Academy system includes 189 Sharp 167 watt photovoltaic panels and covers 8000 square feet at a cost of over $200,000. SMA inverters and a Web Box monitoring system are included, allowing online review of the system performance. The electricity generated returns to the main electric grid on the building. The system generated energy offsets the peak load electricity costs of the Academy. The solar electricity system emphasizes to the children and community the Go Green concept being taught in the science classrooms at the Academy.
