By SI Staff, Solar Industry Magazine

Fuss & O’Neill Inc. has deployed a 3.2 MW solar parking canopy system at Bristol Community College in Fall River, Mass.

The array, which can produce enough power to meet half of the campus’ energy needs, covers 800 parking spaces.

“Not only will the solar canopy promote sustainability on campus, but it will save Bristol Community College tens of thousands of dollars a year in energy costs,” says Kevin Sullivan, vice president of Fuss & O’Neill.

Last year, a Fuss & O’Neill-designed solar canopy went online at Endicott College in Beverly, Mass., and later this yea, another will begin operations at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. Fuss & O’Neill is also currently designing a ground-based solar array for Tufts University in Medford, Mass.
