Charleston-Based Veteran Business Awarded NASA Contract
CHARLESTON, SC - October 17, 2012 - Hannah Solar Government Services LLC announced that B. L. Harbert International, based in Birmingham, Alabama, has awarded the company a contract valued at $470,793 for the design and construction of a solar photovoltaic solar system for the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center at the US Army Installation Redstone Arsenal at Huntsville, Alabama.
Totaling over 122,000 watts of solar power, this renewable energy project will generate more than 149,000 kilowatt hours of electricity annually for the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville. The project will be constructed using the latest solar energy technology with American manufactured components.
"This solar energy project shows the continued commitment of the U. S. Government in providing renewable energy for America," said Dave McNeil, CEO of Hannah Solar Government Services. NASA has been one of the early leaders in using solar energy; for over half a century, most NASA satellites and exploration vehicles utilize solar energy to power the spacecraft. Today, both the Mars Rover and the International Space Station generate their own energy with solar photovoltaic panels. With this investment in solar generation at the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, NASA will reduce operating costs, create energy independence, and reduce NASA’s carbon footprint.
The new contract award will result in the continued growth and expansion of Hannah Solar Government Services in Charleston, South Carolina to include additional staff and an expanded office facility. Currently, Hannah Solar Government Services has solar projects under design and construction in South Carolina, Texas, Maine, California, Georgia, New York, and North Carolina and foresees expansion throughout the United States.
Charleston, South Carolina-based Hannah Solar Government Services is a leading Southeastern solar integrator company. "We are Veterans leading the way in providing America's energy security," said McNeil.
