PV Solar Systems have been expanding recently with an astounding rate of 40% per year. Cost of solar system per kw has dropped dramatically and now very affordable with incentives. In this project, thru a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), the sun-tracked solar system was designed, built and operational in less than 8 months. Tour of the facility will be conducted after a short presentation by the builders.
