MBL-Energy First to Achieve 2018 DSA Pre-Check Certification for Solar Carports at California Schools

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 22 giugno 2018

MBL-Energy, a leading designer and builder of solar energy projects, announced today that it has received the first California Division of State Architects (DSA) pre-check certification issued under the newly released 2016 CBC compliance. This certification will enable MBL-Energy to quickly move forward on the design and construction of parking canopies for California public schools and other public works by reducing the permitting approval time from up to one year down to five weeks, potentially saving schools thousands of dollars in energy costs during the process.MBL-Energy received this certification by being the first to pass cyclical testing and meeting the rigorous project and safety requirements set forth by DSA. An integral component of the new and existing DSA pre-check certification is the approval of MBL-Energy’s patented UL-certified Beacon™ Clip, a best-in-class enhanced solar module attachment. Developed by MBL-Energy CEO Robert Laubach, the UL-certified Beacon™ Clip uses proprietary technology that enables a more efficient and safe installation process on solar arrays. With a higher safety rating than required by the DSA, the Beacon™ Clip is ideal for carports on school campuses and related public work structures.The DSA oversees construction projects on California K–14 campuses by providing plan review and approval, and construction oversight of projects, in response to applications from California school and community college districts. DSA updates project pre-check qualifications based on current building code applications to meet standards agreed upon by a number of internal and external partners.To date, MBL-Energy has successfully completed 350MW of solar projects across California, of which 180 were DSA projects. This includes recently announced projects across six schools in the Santa Rita Union School District in Salinas, California, that integrates one megawatt of solar PV with 1.1 MWh of Sharp’s SmartStorage energy storage systems to form solar plus storage microgrids, and with the Fontana Unified School District (FUSD) in San Bernardino County. For FUSD, MBL-Energy delivered 13.9 MW of solar PV and 6.1 MW of battery storage using Tesla’s energy products for the district’s 40 schools that is expected to save $1 million during the first year and a combined amount of $68 million over 20 years.
