Sunworks will install a 1.5-MW solar power and battery storage construction project for Kingston Technology, a manufacturer of memory products and quality technology solutions for PCs, servers, smart phones, cameras and other electronic devices.

Construction of the new project is expected to commence in mid-2019 after required utility company approvals at Kingston’s corporate headquarters in Fountain Valley, California, and will include a 730-kW ballast roof mount system and a 772-kW solar carport structure. In addition, Sunworks will integrate a NantEnergy energy storage system that is comprised of 10 30-kW inverters, 10 40-kWh battery banks and control management software. The new system is an integral component of Kingston’s plans to reduce its electrical footprint by 20% as well as advance its corporate sustainability initiatives.

“Kingston Technology is committed to innovative technology and has consistently set the industry standards for quality and reliability while maintaining focus on social responsibility,” said Sunworks CEO Chuck Cargile. “Solar power is a natural way for Kingston to reduce energy costs, enhance environmental efficiency and raise the bar for social responsibility and sustainability. Sunworks is proud to partner with such a high quality organization.”

“We selected Sunworks based on the company’s proven experience, deep industry expertise and solid reputation in the solar industry,” said Larry Gonzales, Kingston Technology VP of administration. “Their solution matches well with our requirements for implementing solar power and we look forward to working with them to implement a comprehensive power solution that is environmentally considerate. Going solar is the latest step in our goal to better address our growth and leave Kingston a better place for the next generation.”
