Our latest 400 MW installation in a Mobile Home Park in Riverside, California. Provides shade for parking as well as power for the community. There are over 1,000 solar panels in this system.
Last year, over 14.6 Gigawatts were installed in the United States, bringing the US installed capacity to over 42 GW, enough to power over 8 million homes. Happy Earth Day to all!
This commercial solar installation has produced over 2.4 megawatts of electricity since it was turned on earlier this year. This is equivalent to planting over 4,000 trees and preventing the release of over 75 tons of carbon emissions into the atmosphere.
The city of San Francisco is one of the foggiest cities in the country, yet the number of solar homes in the city is quite high.
This is because solar is economically viable even when there are a lot of cloudy days. Solar cells produce more efficiently at cooler temperatures, and the diffusion of light inside the clouds causes much of that light to still reach the panels.
California has experience record rainfall this year, which has slowed our installations from time to time.

This 60 kW system will provide power for both buildings and shade for most of the parking spaces. Solar Carports are one of the best ways to provide the dual benefit of power plus shade from the hot California sun!
Happy New Year everyone! 2016 was a great year for us, we completed over 3.4 megawatts of solar installations! We are hopeful 2017 will be a better year, for all of us.
Solar systems mounted on the ground mounted are a great option if rooftop areas are not available or suitable. Even with the additional construction costs, they can be quite economically viable and are very popular here in California.
Renewable Energy is very popular in America and California has been the leading market for solar installations. In 2015, California installed 13,241 Megawatts of power, which is enough to power over 3.3 million homes! By 2020 California is required to have 33% of it's electricity come from Renewable Energy and 50% by 2030. Let's keep harvesting this plentiful source of energy!
