April 10, 2014

Suniva, Inc., a metro-Atlanta based manufacturer of high-quality, high-efficiency crystalline silicon solar cells and modules, announced that its products were selected for a photovoltaic system to power the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC),the Nation's Medical Center, providing treatment and support for our wounded, ill and injured service members and their families.

The WRNMMC, located in Bethesda, Maryland, recently installed a 297kW solar parking canopy at The Wounded Warrior Lodge, an extended-stay treatment and rehabilitation facility for wounded service members. The solar canopy, Powered by Suniva®, covers a six-story parking deck and was installed by sub-contractor, SolBright Renewable Energy and managed by contractor, dck worldwide and partner, Ttec.

'Suniva is honored that its modules are used in the canopy that powers The Wounded Warrior Lodge,' said Matt Card, vice president of global sales and marketing of Suniva. 'When SolBright Renewable Energy informed us of the Wounded Warrior project we were thrilled to participate as their trusted partner. Knowing that Suniva powers such an important building makes this project feel a little extra special.'

'The canopy solar system was designed to leverage existing real estate at the WRNMMC,' said Patrick Hassell, managing director of SolBright Renewable Energy. 'Using Suniva's high-powered panels enabled us to get the maximum power in the space provided.'

The energy yielded from the array will be used to help offset the power used at the medical center and will also serve as a tool to provide shade to patrons' vehicles while at the center.
