Suntrek Industries, Inc. of Irvine, California has completed a 700KW solar system for Yosemite National Park. The project incorporates over 2,800 solar collectors that will produce over 800,000 Kilowatt hours annually.

Suntrek collaborated with the National Park Service, Taylor Teter, and PIA to bring this very high profile project from conception to completion. On July 27th the National Park Service will conduct a national media event and ribbon cutting ceremony on the premises of Yosemite?s Maintenance Facility campus.

Suntrek project manager Alex Smith explains, ?We designed the systems so that we could produce clean solar energy from roof tops, car ports, construction yard walls, and the façade of the building itself.?

?This energy-saving photovoltaic project reflects Yosemite National Park?s commitment to sustainable and renewable energy sources.? said Yosemite National Park Superintendent Don Neubacher.

Suntrek President and CEO Roy Heine commented, ?The Yosemite solar system took years of planning by the National Park Service.  With limited roof space available, the design challenge was met by the maintenance facility?s building walls that were not only oriented to the South but were at an angle suitable for great solar gain based on their unique architecture.?
