3-megawatt private solar power installation

April 13, 2011

State, city and public utility officials joined to inaugurate one of the Sacramento region's largest private solar power installations – a 3-megawatt (DC) project that will supply electricity to Depot Park, the 3-million square-foot commercial and industrial complex in South Sacramento. "I launched 'Greenwise Sacramento' because I believe this area has the opportunity to be the greenest region in the country and a hub for investment in clean technology," said Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson. "Today's dedication demonstrates that good environmental policy can be good economic policy. The scale of this project shows that while Sacramento has the sunshine to create renewable energy, we also have the collaboration and the imagination to think big and turn a Brownfield site into a renewable energy showcase. Congratulations to all those involved!"

The 12,600-panel array will produce enough power to meet approximately 40% of the annual electricity needs at Depot Park, the former Sacramento Army Depot. The installation is one of the largest ground mounted-tracking solar projects in California and the only one located at a Superfund Site within a redeveloped military facility.
