AdventHealth to Install 3 MW of Solar

Health care organization AdventHealth is installing on-site solar at its corporate headquarters in Altamonte Springs, Florida.

Starting this week, solar developer ESA will begin the work to install more than 7,500 solar panels on top of four buildings and two garages that comprise AdventHealth’s corporate campus. Additionally, solar canopies will be constructed throughout the parking lot surface, and additional electric vehicle (EV) charging stations will be mounted to support 62 EVs.

Slated for completion by the end of 2024, the on-site solar system will be approximately 3 megawatts in size and provide 4,200 megawatt hours of electricity annually. This will decrease the reliance on utility-provided electricity by about a third and save an estimated $20 million over 20 years.

“AdventHealth is pursuing sustainability initiatives that help ensure the long-term well-being of our team members, patients, communities, business and environment. This solar installation will help reduce our impact on the environment while demonstrating our commitment in a significant and tangible way,” said Christine Stewart, vice president of organizational integration and campus administration for AdventHealth, in a statement.

AdventHealth is also establishing long-term virtual power purchase agreements to fund the development and operation of large-scale renewable energy projects including wind and solar in exchange for renewable energy certificates.
