Novato’s Favorite Solar Energy Experts See a Very Bright Future

Novato-based SolarCraft continues to establish their position as Marin County’s source for local solar energy experts to provide green, renewable energy to shopping centers, business complexes and city buildings.

SolarCraft recently completed a solar energy system at the new Hamilton Marketplace in Novato. Built on the former site of Nave Lanes, the highly anticipated new Hamilton Marketplace will create even more excitement by powering the shopping center with clean, green, renewable energy. All common areas, parking lots and walkway lighting will be powered by 100% solar energy. The 95,000-square-foot center is owned by Grosvenor USA Limited.

SolarCraft was also selected by Walter Kieckhefer Company to design and build a solar energy system for the planned renovation of Pacheco Plaza Shopping Center on Ignacio Boulevard, starting in August. As with Hamilton Marketplace, all commons areas, parking lots and walkway lighting will be powered by 100% solar energy

Both shopping centers have the potential for each tenant to purchase individual solar energy systems to power their space with renewable, clean power.

Woodlands Market in Kentfield, the largest solar powered grocery store in California, was also designed and installed by SolarCraft. “We selected SolarCraft for this project because they were clearly one of the top companies available to us in the industry. They have proven to have been an excellent choice,” says Don Santa, owner of Woodlands.

SolarCraft continues to be a leader in solar installations for residential and commercial solar electric systems, as well as solar thermal pool heating and domestic hot-water systems. Aside from these three above mentioned local projects, SolarCraft’s other notable local projects include: Jacuzzi Vineyards, Sonoma; Scottish Rite Masonic Center, Santa Rosa; Starmont by Merryvale Vineyards, Napa; Fountaingrove Golf & Athletic Club, Santa Rosa; Marin Builder’s Association, San Rafael; Cline Cellars, Sonoma; Geyserville Fire Station; and San Marin Associates Office Building, Novato.
