Solar Happenings in the San Francisco Bay Area
Chinese solar photovoltaic manufacturer Trina Solar Ltd. of Changzhou, China, has chosen San Francisco, California as its base for North America sales operations. A few miles south, in the Silicon Valley, the San Jose Tech Museum of Innovation dedicated a 185 kW solar-electric system on the roof of their Parkside Hall--an ancillary building next to their main facility. The solar installation of SunPower solar panels mounted on non-roof-penetrating T10 Solar Roof Tiles was designed and installed by SunPower Corporation.
