Coca-Cola Bottling Los Angeles

Objective

Project Profile

Location: Los Angeles, California
Date Completed: January, 2004
Peak Capacity: 325 kW System
Customer: Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Southern California
Participants: Solar Integrated Technologies

Coca-Cola Bottling of Los Angeles had a vision of creating a green building at the Los Angeles plant - Keenly interested in deploying reliable renewable resources and energy conservation techniques to meet its sustainable building goals, Coca Cola also sought a cost-effective solution to reduce the operating costs associated with providing a reliable electricity supply to its bottling and distribution facility.

Solution

Coca-Cola determined that solar technology benefits both the company and the surrounding community. It allows the facility to generate its own electricity cost-effectively, and helps increase the stability of the region's energy supply as well by reducing the utility grid's transmission constraints. By deploying solar power, Coca-Cola generates electricity to help offset peak demand utility rates, especially during summer months when electricity is most expensive.

SIT System Components

  • 236 SIT SR2001 Panels
  • 100kW & 225kw Xantrex
  • Power Smart Management System

By combining Solar Integrated Technologies (SIT) with Uni-Solar flexible thin-film solar cells, Coca Cola Bottling stands to save $millions in energy costs while significantly decreasing its CO2 emissions over the life of the system.  The system also benefits the stability of the regions energy supply by reducing the grid's transmission constraints.  The extra capacity is critically important during peak hours when energy from public utility sources is more expensive.

Showa Marine Cold Storage

Objective

Project Profile

Location: Los Angeles, California
Date Completed: December, 2003
Peak Capacity: 325 kW System
Customer: Showa Marine
Participants: Solar Integrated Technologies, BP Solar

As the energy situation in California became more and more critical in recent years, Showa Marine Cold Storage sought ways to offset expensive peak power purchases from the utility grid. At the same time, interest had been growing in renewable energy sources. Showa Marine needed a strong energy alternative that would satisfy the needs and future goals of this progressive company.

Solution

After evaluating multiple renewable energy alternatives, Showa Marine decided to incorporate solar photovoltaic (PV) technology to reduce their operating costs and take a leadership role in promoting renewable technology. Showa Marine chose a commercial-scale solar electric generating system that was designed, manufactured and installed by Solar Integrated Technologies.
