The National Weather Service Goes SOLAR

Provided by Argent Solar

Argent Solar Electric recently completed a 13kW ground-mounted photovoltaic electric solar system for the National Weather Service (NWS) in Vail, AZ.  Responding to an RFP from the NWS, Argent Solar Electric won the contract and began construction of the solar system on October 13, 2010. Construction was somewhat challenging owing to the location – on top of a mountain just southeast of Tucson!

Argent used excavators and jack-hammers to dig fourteen, 4-foot-deep core footings along 100 feet of hillside to secure the photovoltaic panel mounting structure. Incredibly, the construction was completed in 14 days and the solar power system is now in operation.  The National Weather Service owns the solar system which will provide approximately 21,000 kWh of electrical energy a year which equates to almost 100% of the National Weather Service’s electric needs.
