Solar PV Project: JE Dunn

Download This Case Study

JE Dunn’s solar project presents a unique application for rooftop solar. First, the panels are mounted on a ground-mount racking system, even though they are located on a roof, so the profile of the panels is taller. This allows the two arrays, faced east and west, to create a visual barrier to the rooftop HVAC units.

Project Scope: Velo Solar provided full design, engineering, procurement and construction of the of the solar PV rooftop array; project management, administration and quality management; operations and maintenance, and ongoing energy monitoring.

When renovating our new corporate headquarters to a LEED Gold standard, we were looking for a qualified solar partner to fulfill our unique site requirements. We found that partner in Velo Solar, and together, executed a creative design that not only provides energy savings for the building, but simultaneously meets our architectural goals for the renovation. – Dan Kaufman, Regional President, JE Dunn Construction
