Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) recently selected SunPower to deploy a fully-integrated solar and storage project. The 100-acre campus in Santa Rosa will feature the SunPower® Helix™ Carport system and SunPower's Garage Top Carport system totaling about 2.6MW, coupled with a 1.3MW (2MWh) energy storage system from Stem, Inc. The 40-acre Petaluma campus will also install a 1.3MW Helix Carport system.
"As a large community college that believes strongly in sustainability, SRJC wants to maximize the value of our solar energy system with energy storage," said Dr. Frank Chong, Superintendent and President at SRJC. "This will cut our energy costs even further to improve our economics, benefit our students, and use taxpayer dollars as wisely as possible."
"With SunPower headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area, it's rewarding to see local colleges install solar to save on energy costs, while demonstrating the importance of sustainability to students in our communities," said Nam Nguyen, SunPower executive vice president. "We look forward to helping Santa Rosa Junior College maximize the value of its solar and storage investment with SunPower's comprehensive, cost-effective energy solutions."
