Vista Solar has announced that it has completed a 450-kilowatt (kW) rooftop solar system for food distributor, Cathay LA.
The system at Cathay LA will produce energy which will be purchased by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) under a Feed in Tariff (FiT) program at a fixed rate over 20 years.
"We are excited to be producing clean energy for LADWP at a fair market price," says Cathay LA owner David Lim. "It's a win-win program and a model for the nation."
All participating FiT systems are located within the LADWP's service territory and interconnected to the LADWP electrical distribution system. The program seeks to encourage renewable energy development within the Los Angeles Basin and help meet the 33% Renewable Portfolio Standard mandate by 2020.
Construction of the rooftop system took about three weeks to complete, and covers 44% of the 67,000 square foot rooftop. The equipment utilized includes 1,385 high-efficiency Suniva 325 watt modules, SMA Tripower inverters and a SunLink mounting system.
