University of Delaware

Standard Solar University of Delaware

Standard Solar installed solar electric systems at three UD locations – the Field House, Clayton Hall on the Laird Campus off Route 896 and at 461 Wyoming Road. A significant challenge to this project was one of the initial sites chosen, the UD Field House, that features a half barrel-shaped roof. Although the shape of the roof is nearly ideal for solar, the installation of flat solar modules on a rounded roof presented the team with quite a challenge.

St. Mary’s County Public Schools made a commitment to green schools—and honored it by enlisting Standard Solar to install and operate a more than 500 kW solar system on the grounds and roof of George Washington Carver Elementary School. The elementary school’s system is expected to generate approximately 677,000 kilowatt hours of electricity in its first year of operations, representing 80 percent of the school’s energy needs. The amount of clean energy the system will produce in its first year is equivalent to taking 105.5 cars off the road each year.
