Solar Power System for Aqua Farming Being Built

WALNUT, Calif., July 26, 2011 PRNewswire – Sunvalley Solar, a leading provider of solar power technology and solar system integration systems, announced the start of its 221.16 Kilowatt solar power system installation for Aqua Farming Tech Inc. in Thermal, California.

“In June of this year we completed a 285K roof-mounted solar power system for Prime Time in the Palm Desert area. Following on that success we have begun the installation of a 221.16 Kilowatt system for Aqua Farming Tech, which is comprised of over 2000 pieces of thin film panels mounted in the ground. We expect to complete installation of this high quality efficient system by the end of September,” said James Zhang, CEO of Sunvalley Solar.

For those of you in the dark, Aqua Farming, also known as Aquaculture, is simply the farming of aquatic organisms such as fish, shellfish and even plants in a controlled environment.

The system that Sunvalley Solar is building will be comprised of 2,328 solar panels from Tianwei Solarfilms, one 260kW solar inverter from PV Powered, and is expected to generate 381,267 Kilowatt hours of electricity annually.

“The start of installation represents just one of many positive experiences we have had with Sunvalley Solar – they are extremely knowledgeable, cost conscious, reliable and above all professional. They offered us the best possible solar solution and we cannot wait to start powering our farm with clean, green energy. We will look toward Sunvalley for future solar solutions,” said Rocky French, owner of Aqua Farming Tech.

News of the new project reportedly has PETA supporters across the country cringing and “Greentechies” cheering.
