    PETALUMA, CA, March 29, 2011The Petaluma School District recently flipped the switch on a 4,508-panel 1 Megawatt Solar Power System. The system, using Sharp's NUU235F1 235 watt solar modules, was designed and installed by Cupertino Electric, Inc. (www.cei.com) and is comprised of two arrays mounted on canopies at the Casa Grande High School and Petaluma High School campuses. The system is projected to reduce the district's annual energy costs and supply the school district with enough solar energy over a 20-year period to offset the annual greenhouse gas emissions of 4,302 passenger vehicles."Sharp is delighted to be a part of this project. This system will help the Petaluma School District educate its students about renewable energy while simultaneously reducing its carbon footprint," said Eric Hafter, senior vice president of Sharp Solar Energy Solutions Group. "Teaching students the importance of renewable energy sources will help create a greener future and will enable the school district to put more money into the classroom. It will also help students make smarter energy choices in the future."“Having worked with Sharp on prior solar photovoltaic projects, we were pleased to engage with them on the Petaluma Joint High School District project,” said Meisa Kassis, project manager for Cupertino Electric, Inc. “Our ability to safely deliver a multi-campus solar system on time and within budget is largely dependent on suppliers like Sharp who are dedicated to reliability and quality.”
