Value Delivered

Dynalectric San Diego was the prime contractor on this renewable energy project, located at Marine Corp Air Station Miramar, providing design, construction, and utility interconnection services for two separate and independent solar photovoltaic (PV) electrical generating systems. 

Client Objectives

The client undertook this project to increase its renewable energy generation and reduce total energy use through a lighting retrofit with the addition of lighting controls.


Each PV system consisted of photovoltaic arrays mounted on support brackets, electrical terminal and combiner boxes, quick-connect electrical connectors, direct current (DC) wiring and disconnects, grid-connected inverters and isolation transformers, alternating current (AC) disconnects, and a web-based data acquisition and monitoring system (DAS). 

We also provided design and construction services for lighting retrofits at two separate facilities. These retrofits included replacing the existing high intensity discharge (HID) fixtures with the equivalent fluorescent luminaries and upgrading the lighting controls to reduce the overall energy demand.

Client Background

This project was completed as part of the NAVFAC Southwest multiple award construction contract (MACC).
