City Hall Roof-Mounted PV System

Printer-friendly version

The City Council has had an interest in constructing a photovoltaic system on the City Hall roof for over a decade, and we’re excited to announce that it’s now happening!  Over the course of the next two months, contractor Sunterra Solar will be working to install a 150 kW system (AC rating), and they will be using the City Hall parking lot near the Dog Park as their staging area.  Therefore, we ask that Dog Park users please refrain from parking in the spaces indicated as restricted with signs and barricades, as those are necessary for the contractor’s materials and equipment, which include a lift.  We look forward to having the system installed, which will allow for shedding more of the City’s load dependence from the public utility.  The current system does not include a commercial solar battery storage system, but in the event the Council does choose to install one, we would see even greater independence from the utility by saving excess power generated during lower demand periods.  If you have any questions about this project, please contact the Public Works Dept. at (415) 508-2130.
