COMPLETED: August 2014
CLIENT: Fortinet, Inc.
The Fortinet Solar Campus project is a 908 kW net metered distributed generation solar photovoltaic system that covers two rooftops and three parking lots to power Fortinet’s corporate campus. The project is composed of two sections: a solar carport system and a commercial rooftop solar energy system. The solar carport system, in addition to generating approximately 1,004,700 kWh a year, will serve as a daytime shade and cooling area for staff vehicles, and offer improved lighting at night.
The rooftop system has an expected output of approximately 357,000 kWh annually. The rooftop solar array is a hybrid of ballasted and positive anchoring to fasten the system to the building’s structural members. It is engineered and constructed to maintain the rooftop’s 20 year warranty with the original roofing membrane manufacturer.
Full scope engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC).
During this project Blue Oak Energy worked directly with the end customer from planning to installation.
Fortinet’s overreaching goal in building a solar energy campus was to affirm its commitment to sustainable business practices. The company also expects this project to bring them closer to their goal of both creating sustainable operations and inspiring other Bay Area organizations to follow their lead in embracing renewable energy.
