The VA is proud to take a leadership role in the adoption of renewable energy. This project allows us to drastically expand our available footprint for solar collection, while simultaneously providing our veterans the added benefit of shaded parking, said James Larson, energy manager at the Phoenix VA Medical Center. We are excited to work with SunWize on this landmark project.

The Phoenix VA Medical Center project is one of a number of systems now under contract with SunWize as a part of a comprehensive VA effort to utilize renewable energy and improve energy efficiency. The completed install is expected to generate over 5.7 million kilowatt-hours of clean energy annuallyenough electricity to power over 600 homes. This reduction in energy demand from the electric grid is equivalent to a yearly reduction of over 7.6 million pounds of CO2 emissions.

SunWize and the Department of Veterans Affairs have a strong track record of successful solar projects. We are honored by the VAs continued show of confidence in selecting SunWize to design and build not only its largest system to date, but the industrys largest carport PV system, said David Kaltsas, president of the Systems Group at SunWize.
