River Oak Elementary School
Horry County Schools (South Carolina), in conjunction with MB Kahn construction selected Baker Renewable Energy of Raleigh, NC to install two separate PV systems at the new River Oaks Elementary campus. BRE installed a 8.190kW canopy system, which included (42) Sanyo Bifacial panels and (1) SMA SunnyBoy 8000 inverter. These bifacial panels are unique in that they are capable of capturing radiation from both the front and back sides, in an effort to harvest diffuse radiation present.
In addition to the canopy, BRE also installed a ground mounted PV system comprised of 15 panels to offset a portion of the heating and cooling load placed on the buildings HVAC units. In total, Baker Renewable Energy installed 11.115kWp DC Solar Photovoltaic on the River Oak Elementary School campus.
