Eaton Corp., Cleveland, will design and install a turn-key photovoltaic (PV) system for the Albuquerque, N.M., Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Health Care System. The scope of the $20 million contract includes designing and installing a 3.2MW PV system throughout the site, including car port and roof-mounted arrays, as well as implementing a building-integrated system to help reduce demand from the local utility grid. This will be the largest PV system in New Mexico.

“Eaton is now fully engaged in the sustainable energy market,” said Paul Cody, vice president and general manager of Eaton's Electrical Service and Systems Division. “This major project will combine our expertise in electrical components and power distribution with comprehensive solar power system design and installation.”

This contract is one of several recent agreements that Eaton has reached with government organizations, including $8 million in electrical products and services for the San Antonio Military Medical Center on the Fort Sam Houston Army base in Texas, supplying hybrid electric power systems for 35 fuel-efficient shuttle buses purchased by the U.S. General Services Administration for use on U.S. military bases and providing energy conservation at the United States Postal Service (USPS) Eastern Facilities Service Office at postal facilities in North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and South Carolina.
