Stronghold Engineering

Roof-mounted installation

System Details:

  • 1.3 MW
  • 5,376 Sunmodule™ solar panels

System Overview:

  • The Navy’s largest contiguous rooftop solar array sits atop SPAWAR’s headquarters facility, a prominent building bounded by Interstate 5 and Pacific Highway in San Diego’s Old Town district.
  • The installation, which will feed power into the San Diego grid, is part of military-wide efforts to conserve energy and reduce reliance on fuels, especially from offshore.
  • In October, the Navy awarded Stronghold, an engineering, procurement and construction contractor based in Riverside, Calif., the Star Award for Safety and an Outstanding Evaluation on the Construction Contractor Appraisal Support System for Stronghold’s work on the SPAWAR system. These honors represent the Navy’s highest recognitions of excellence in construction quality, timeliness and safety. Awarded to only 15 percent of contractors doing business with the Navy, the Star Award is given to companies that demonstrate the most proactive approach to safety during the life of their contracts.

System Overview:

  • The system was installed at the El Portal Administrative Complex in the 1,189-square-mile Yosemite park, marking an advance in self-sufficiency and sustainability for the treasured wilderness reserve in California’s Sierra Nevada mountains
  • Comprised of a 500-kilowatt parking canopy offering cover for center employees and visitors, a 100-kilowatt roof-mount system atop a warehouse, and a 72-kilowatt system on a sloped wall of an office building
  • The park estimates the solar installation will supply about 12 percent of the park’s total power consumption

Customer Testimonial:

"The combination of harnessing California's abundant sunlight and technology and labor provided by U.S. workers ideally suits this energy advance for Yosemite National Park. Solar panels from SolarWorld, along with the contributions of a number of other U.S.-based service firms and manufacturing enterprises, will maximize the sustainable impact on this effort to not only take care of the park but stretch the planet's resources." - Superintendent Don Neubacher
