Rosendin Electric, a private electrical contractor, has started construction of a new 250,000 square-foot parking structure for the Metrolink Station in Tustin, Calif., including a photovoltaic power system.

Rosendin Electric's La Palma office will be responsible for the electrical installation of the new parking structure. The company's solar division will install the photovoltaic canopy, which will provide shade for the rooftop parking level, and will deliver almost 85 kW of AC power.

The solar energy system is expected to have an annual output rating of approximately 166,000 kWh, which should be more than enough to offset the parking structure's lighting requirements and other electrical demands, the company says.

Bomel Construction Co. of Anaheim Hills, Calif., is the prime contractor, and Watry Design of Redwood City, Calif., will serve as architect and structural engineer.
