SolarCity, Lend Lease Announce Next Phase in SolarStrong Project for Sustainable Electricity Production

Military Communities in California, Colorado to Receive Cleaner Energy; SolarCity Launches Veterans Hiring Initiative

LOS ANGELES, July 17, 2012 -- Lend Lease and SolarCity® have announced the next project within SolarStrong, SolarCity’s ambitious plan to provide solar electricity for up to 120,000 U.S. military homes. The two companies are collaborating to provide renewable solar energy to more than 850 military residences at Lend Lease-managed Air Force communities in California and Colorado Springs -- Tierra Vista at the Los Angeles Air Force Base, and Peterson AFB and Schriever AFB, both in Colorado Springs.

This project furthers Lend Lease’s commitment towards building and maintaining state-of-the-art sustainable communities for U.S. military families. With a focus on identifying innovative sustainable solutions, Lend Lease projects also include the two largest solar communities in the country at Soaring Heights Communities (Davis- Monthan AFB, AZ) and Island Palms Communities (Army Housing, Oahu, HI) , the largest solar thermal project in the nation at Camp Lejeune, NC as well as the only Zero Energy homes on a military installation at Fort Campbell, KY.
