AVX Goes Solar At South Carolina Headquarters

AVX Corp., a manufacturer of electronic components, recently installed a 908 kW solar parking canopy at its corporate headquarters in Fountain Inn, S.C.

Consisting of 2,700 PV modules, the installation, completed by Atlanta-based Hannah Solar, boasts a projected annual output of 1.3 GWh of clean power.

Comprising 10 double cantilever monocrystalline architectural solar arrays that cover the employee parking lot, the solar canopy is expected to generate nearly 150,00 kWh of electricity by the end of this spring. The clean energy will be used to subsidize the headquarters’ daily energy consumption, lessen electricity expenses and offset carbon emissions.
