Agriculture business flips the switch on new solar panels

Posted in In The News

Bonipak Farms Goes Solar

A produce company in the Santa Maria Valley is now farming more than food. It's also harvesting solar energy.

Thursday, Bonipak turned on a 1.3 mega-watt solar panel system.
A mega watt is the equivalent of 1 million watts.

The project will save 14 million gallons of water that the business would use to generate electricity.

"Essentially, the solar system's producing power that's off-setting their direct loads, so it's simply power that they don't buy from PG&E," said Ted Walsh, president of Stellar Energy.

Don Klusendorf, the director of sales and marketing at Bonipak, says, "We consider ourselves leaders of being sustainable and being social responsible. This is just one more thing of what we do."

Bonipak says the project will pay for itself in a few years.
It's expected to save more than $10 million in the next 30 years.

Stellar Energy Completes Installation for Honda

Posted in In The News

Includes Solar Powered Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

American Honda Motor has unveiled its 100kW solar-cell demonstration project at Honda Performance Development (HPD) in Santa Clarita, California featuring 800 thin-film CIGS solar panels manufactured by Honda Soltec. The project was designed and installed by Stellar Energy and includes a roof, carport and load dock canopy installation at the HPD headquarters and is said to be one of Honda's largest solar installations to date.

The 100kW system includes solar tracking and is designed power to power electric vehicle charging stations. The PV system's energy output is monitored in real-time through an Internet-based monitoring system.

"The installation of Honda Soltec solar panels along with an electric vehicle charging station at one of our most advanced Honda facilities in the United States represents a big step for us in our solar product development," said Mike Hodge, manager of Honda Home Energy for the Power Equipment Division of American Honda Motor. "What we learn from this new project at HPD will provide real-world data and feedback on the use of Honda solar cells in a typical commercial application."
