Hannah Solar Government Services (HSGS) completed the construction of over 4 megawatt (MW) of solar energy systems for NASA at the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. The systems include a 4-MW single-axis tracker solar photovoltaic (PV) system from Array Technologies and a 262 kilowatt (kW) solar PV parking canopy. Single-axis trackers follow the movement of the sun East to West maximizing energy production and boosting energy cost savings. The parking canopy will provide shaded parking while producing energy.
NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility provides low cost suborbital and orbital flight services for government and industry needs. The solar project at Wallops was funded by an Energy Savings Performance Contract, which will reduce the cost of energy used to perform NASA’s mission at the facility.
The project at Wallops marks third solar energy project completed by HSGS for NASA. CEO of HSGS, COL (Ret.) Dave McNeil said, “NASA is a leader among federal agencies in setting and achieving energy cost savings goals. We are proud to have been selected for the construction of these systems”
HSGS is a veteran-owned business leading the way in global energy security by designing and building renewable energy and microgrid systems. Serving government, commercial, industrial, and utility clients, HSGS’s breadth of experience includes projects that span the continental United States as well as overseas.
