Project Overview

SunMaxx Solar, a leading, vertically integrated manufacturer of solar thermal systems and components, is pleased to announce the installation of a solar thermal system at Moody Air Force Base.

The project was conducted in conjunction with Intelligent Green Solutions (IGS) who was contracted by Kevin Kilpatrick and Santiago Iturralde of Slone Associates, Inc. to design and install the solar system. The system was installed to help further the base as well as the Air Forces’ leading green energy initiatives. The solar thermal installation included 420 square feet of 20 TitanPowerPlus SU2 series flat plate collectors. The system was a drainback design with a non-pressurized storage tank.

Moody Air Force Base is located near the city of Valdosta in Southern Georgia, 30 miles from the Florida border. The base occupies nearly 12,000 acres of federally owned land. The solar thermal system was installed for a mess hall which serves 3 meals a day to the residents on the base. The system was completely installed and commissioned in January 2012.

“Moody AFB, AKEA and Slone Associates, Inc are very pleased with the system configuration, installation and performance. My thanks to all involved at IGS and SunMaxx Solar!!!”, exclaims Santiago Iturralde of Slone Associates in Valdosta, GA.
Federal mandates require that 25% of Air Force facility energy use comes from renewable energy sources by 2025 and Moody will help the push to stay on the list of green power partners. The USAF leads the US Government in green energy installations – with more than 6% of their total energy usage across all facilities coming from renewable and green energy sources.
