Boulder Valley Christian Church Ground-mounted Solar Array

To reflect their strong commitment to environmental stewardship, the Boulder Valley Christian Church (BVCC) contracted Independent Power Systems to design and install a 110 kW ground-mounted PV array consisting of 468 SunPower SER-235P modules. After it was determined that the Church’s roof would not produce the desired energy yield due to its low angle and east/west orientation, an alternative site was proposed adjacent to the BVCC community garden. Although the ground-mount racking system increased installation per kW, the new location saw an estimated 20% increase in annual energy production, more than offsetting the upfront costs. Boulder Valley Christian Church now operates at over 90% solar electricity.
