Solon/Solar City

Solon and Solar City are the College's partners in the district wide solar project.  In addition to the covered parking lots and solar arrays that are going up, Solon will also donate funds to the PCC Foundation and funds have been allocated to plant over 300 trees by the U.S. Forest Service.

City of Tempe S.A.V.E. solar project

At the end of 2012, the City of Tempe issued an RFP for Solar Photovoltaic Electric Generating Systems.  The City of Tempe (and Pima Community College) is a member of the Strategic Alliance for Volume Expenditures, also known as S.A.V.E.

Below is the RFP put out by the City of Tempe to fulfill the S.A.V.E. Cooperative Purchasing requirements and the awarded Solar Services Agreement.  Also Included is a list of S.A.V.E. members as of April 7, 2016.

PCC Phase 1 Solar Project

Below are documents prepared by Facilities and our partners for the first phase of the solar project.

PCC Phase 2 Solar Project

Below are the documents prepared by Facilities and our partners for the second phase of the solar project.

Solar Monitoring

The "My SolarCity" monitoring allows anyone to view utility meter, (facility consumption,) on meters having solar panel arrays attached, and the power produced by the solar array.

The default view is for the day; other views are for the month, and the year, (in the case of Pima CC, the time since the panel array was installed.)  The curve, in orange, seen on pages is the consumption by the facility from that particular meter.  Viewers can see the timeline and notice that the consumption grows a few hours before the facility begins its occupancy for the day.  Viewers should also see a decline in use as the building reaches the end of its day.  In the case of "Month" view weekends are easy to spot from their reduced consumption.

The green bars on the view represent solar production for a given hour, (in the day view,) or the given day, (in the month view,) or the given month, (in the year view.)  Hovering over these bars with the mouse will show both the consumption, and the solar production for the given period of time.

The bottom of each screen shows the solar production, and meter consumption for the total time represented on that screen.  It also shows the percentage of that meter's total use that has been provided for during the period shown on the screen.
