In 2019, Hakai designed, constructed and installed two robust solar arrays for Thompson Rivers University. A (338) 385W panel solar array, producing a peak capacity of 130.10kWdc and 100kWac, was mounted on the roof of the Williams Lake Campus main building. A (158) 385W panel solar array, producing a peak capacity of 66.6kWdc and 60.83kWac, was mounted on the Chappell Family Building at the Kamloops TRU campus.
Both systems are designed with string inverters; on flat roof with ballasted racking. The Chappell Family Building for Nursing and Population Health in Kamloops was designed with environmental sustainability in mind, making it the ideal candidate to host the solar energy system. TRU continues to grow their renewable energy assets on campus and positions themselves as a community leader in sustainability and climate action.
Together, the campus has reached over 95% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions—bringing the university closer to its sustainability goals.
