An Excerpt from the Solar Builder article:

Oltmans’ ingenuity and flexibility when problems arose led to this project winning second place in the ground-mount category of Solar Builder’s 2014 Project of the Year awards.

Looking at the project now, you wouldn’t know how much work went into installing all 8,800 SunPower modules across the three parking lots. Everything was cleaned up and finished for the 2013/2014 school year, and the 3.8-MW system officially came online in November 2013 and has been estimated to generate up to 66% of the total electricity consumed on campus.
