Ohio National Guard Camp Perry completes 538kW installation featuring Nanosolar utility panels

Camp Perry Ohio National Guard Base in Port Clinton, Ohio is home to 2,750 of Nanosolar’s utility panels, which are helping to power the recently completed 538kW solar installation. Ramanoff Electric managed the engineering, procurement and construction of the project.

The company’s utility panels were pre-assembled into cartridges by AP Alternatives in Ridgeville Corners, Ohio and then delivered and inserted into pre-driven and laser-guided piers at the project site. 

“The Nanosolar Utility Panel delivers a low-cost, easy to install solar power alternative for America’s military bases,” said Jerry Heminger, VP of Alternative Energy at Romanoff Electric. “Nanosolar’s utility-scale thin film panel design allows us to install equivalent power with fewer panels and less equipment, cabling and people than conventional thin film solar technologies.”

Nanosolar additionally revealed that it is on track to build its 1MW ground-mount thin-film solar installation at California’s Camp Roberts National Guard Base near Paso Robles. Belectric will provide EPC services for the installation, which is funded by the US Department of Defense’s ESTCP Program. The project is expected to break ground in January 2012 and be completed within three months.
