HSGS Builds Solar Canopies at Biloxi VA Medical Center
May 5th, 2020
Summerville, SC – Hannah Solar Government Services (HSGS) has recently completed the construction of several solar energy systems for the Department of Veterans Affairs at the Biloxi VA Medical Center in Biloxi, MS. These solar energy systems include, a 550-kW solar PV parking canopy, a 40-kW rooftop solar PV array, and a PV parking canopy for electric service vehicles. As a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), HSGS was contracted directly by the VA to design and install these energy systems.
The parking canopy installed will provide shaded parking for nurses, doctors, patients, and other workers at the medical center while producing energy. The VA is a leader among federal agencies in striving to reach federal renewable energy goals and the Biloxi VAMC is an example of the VA’s continued commitment to renewable energy.
The Biloxi VA Medical Center is one of six VA clinics managed by the Gulf Coast Veterans Health Care System. The VA Gulf Coast Veterans Health System was established in 1932 and has been providing care and improving the health of our veterans who have sacrificed for our country. The Gulf Coast Veterans Health System is part of the larger South Central VA Health Care Network.
COL (R) Dave McNeil said, “We are honored to be selected again by the VA to design and build their solar PV arrays. HSGS has worked for the VA for nearly a decade now, across the country and in Puerto Rico.”
