Logistics giant DHL has joined forces with Lumeta and Daniel’s Electric to fit a new 88kW building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) system on a Californian high school. The 220 Lumeta PowerPly modules were installed over three days on the 35,000-square-foot roof of a recently-built classroom at Banning High School. DHL’s Global Forwarding division handled the shipping and customs clearance of the Lumeta modules, which were manufactured in Shanghai, China.
“We select our components from top tier, well-known component manufacturers,” said Justin Khoe, vice president of operations at Lumeta. “Lumeta uses the same approach for logistics and has selected DHL Global Forwarding as one of our strategic logistics partners to handle our shipments. We want to partner with suppliers who can scale, have global presence and are top tier in their industry.”
“We are proud to partner with Lumeta and DHL on this first school installation in California of the Lumeta PowerPly modules. This installation is particularly meaningful because of the project’s significance to the local community. We're glad to help the School District not only lower its utility expense, but also have a system that generates clean, renewable solar power,” added Daniel’s Electric president Thomas Ispas.
