California Solar Retrofit Requires Creative Connections - ENR News

One of the largest distributed commercial solar retrofit projects in California required creative planning, design and logistics. In April, Sacramento-based HMH Builders completed the first of 15 1-MW photovoltaic additions to health provider Kaiser Permanente buildings up and down the state as part of an Engineering, Procurement and Construction agreement with San Francisco-based solar developer Recurrent Energy.

 

With help from parent company Swinerton Inc., San Francisco, the entire project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2011. When complete, these projects will supply 10% of the power used by the 15 facilities. The goal is to have 25% of its energy needs met by alternative power by 2020. That could take the form of solar, fuel cell, heat pumps and/or cogeneration.
