Sunrise Power Solutions completes 2-MW solar carport for Long Island school district

Sunrise Power Solutions has just installed what is likely the largest single-site solar project for a school district on Long Island, New York. Smithtown Central School District has recently unveiled its new 2-MW solar carport at Smithtown High School West. With 5,422 solar modules, this installation should generate 2.7 million kWh annually, which is enough to satisfy one-third of the district’s electricity needs.

This carport installation, which also features electric vehicle charging stations, is the culmination of a year-long, $23 million energy overhaul of school district buildings that state officials announced would cut traditional electricity demand by nearly 90%. This saves roughly $1 million annually in energy costs for the Smithtown District alone. The solar carport structure has been functional and operating since May 2021.

“The team at Sunrise is proud of what we’ve accomplished here, but the best part is knowing the money saved on energy will directly support the students here at the Smithtown District,” states Brian Chebuske, vice president of operations at Sunrise. “By cutting back energy costs, it’s really the kids who benefit most. And that’s what motivates us to take on these big challenges — big rewards for our community.”
