SolarCraft has just completed a 35.4 kilowatt solar energy system at the new Hamilton Marketplace Complex in Novato, California. The system will enable the new shopping center to generate enough clean electricity to spare the air nearly 31 tons of harmful greenhouse gases annually, equivalent to the air filtering of 6.2 acres of trees.
Hamilton Marketplace is built on the former site of Nave Lanes and all commons areas, certain parking lot areas and walkways will be powered by 100% solar energy. The 94,000-square-foot center now supports 165 high efficiency SunPower solar modules and the new system is expected to generate 44,950 kilowatt hours annually and spans 2,210 square feet. There is potential for each tenant to purchase individual solar energy systems to power their space with renewable energy, clean power.
