SolarCraft Hosts State Senator Mike McGuire

North Bay’s Leading Solar & Clean Energy Firm Gets a Visit from a Senator

Novato and Sonoma-based SolarCraft, a leader in solar and clean energy system design and installation, is proud to have hosted a visit from California State Senator Mike McGuire.

Senator Mike McGuire and CalSEIA’s Policy Director Brad Heavner, visited SolarCraft offices on Friday, January 5, 2018 to discuss policy and public-private ideas to drive solar and sustainability in our region.

SolarCraft is proud to have led the regional energy transition for 35 years, and discussed how clean energy solutions have benefitted – and continue to benefit – Senator McGuire’s 2nd Senate District constituents financially, environmentally, and socially. Specifically, so far SolarCraft alone has delivered the following benefits to over 6,716 customers in the 2nd District:

• Saved $7,500,000 in electricity costs saved annually
• Avoided 60,000,000 pounds of CO2 every year
• Currently supporting a workforce of 50 employees
• Set the standard of social responsibility being a 100% Employee-Owned company since 2015

Thanks to local heroes such as Senator McGuire, the fight for solar and other renewable options continues to force itself forward, gaining insurmountable momentum against even the toughest adversaries. We appreciate the assistance Senator McGuire has provided and look forward to following his continued protection of our vital industry.

SolarCraft Brings Solar Power to Sonoma’s Sweetwater Spectrum

First of a Kind Community for Adults with Autism Powered by the Sun

Sonoma solar power Sweetwater SpectrumNovato and Sonoma based SolarCraft announced the completion of a 51 kW
solar electric and solar pool heating system at Sweetwater Spectrum community in Sonoma, CA, a residential development geared specifically for adults with autism. The photovoltaic and solar pool heating systems will provide energy savings for its community for many decades.

The solar electric system is roof-mounted on four residential buildings and the community center. It consists of high-efficiency solar panels spanning a total of 3,600 square feet. In addition, a solar heating system was installed to greatly reduce the cost of heating the pool.

SolarCraft offers unique financing options specifically for non-profits, which eliminates the high upfront costs. The finance payments are typically less than paying PG&E, so the projects are saving money immediately.

Designed to LEED Gold standards, in addition to solar power the homes and community structures at Sweetwater Spectrum were constructed using durable, low-VOC building materials and finishes, solar water heating and radiant cooling/heating systems. In fact, the community is a pilot project for the PG&E Net Zero Energy Pilot Program.

The system’s solar electric panels are expected to generate approximately 73,000 kilowatt hours of energy annually. The new solar energy system allows Sweetwater Spectrum to generate enough electricity each day to power over 12 average homes. It will spare the air nearly 20 tons of harmful greenhouse gases annually. Over the next 30 years, the air pollution saved will be equivalent to eliminating more than a million miles of driving.
