SunWize finishes solar parking covers at Phoenix VA Medical Center

SunWize Systems has finished the first phase of installation of one of the largest carport solar systems in the U.S., and announced the system will be bigger than planned.
The 4.45-megawatt system at the Carl T. Hayden Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Phoenix originally was planned to be 3.62 megawatts. The entire system is expected to be finished in early 2012.

SunWize Technologies, based in Kingston, N.Y., has worked with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs on other smaller projects.

At the Dallas Medical Center, the company installed a 337-kilowatt system, and at the Jerry L. Pettis VA Hospital in Loma Linda, Calif., the company installed a 309-kilowatt system.

SunWize is a subsidiary of Mitsui & Co. Inc. in Japan.

Once finished, the system will cover parking with 18,000 Samsung and Sanyo solar panels. According to the company, it will be both the largest carport system and largest hospital system in the U.S.
