West Marin Medical Practice Flips the Switch to Solar and Saves
Novato and Sonoma based SolarCraft, a leading North Bay clean energy provider for over 35 years, recently completed the design and installation of a 11.2 kW DC solar electric system at West Marin Medical Center in Point Reyes Station, CA.
The solar power system consists of 28 high-efficiency 400-watt solar panels, producing 30,508 kWh annually. The photovoltaic array is roof mounted and will offset over 53% off the facility’s annual electricity usage, providing thousands in utility bill savings.
Solar makes perfect sense for medical clinics, being that they are often users of large amounts of energy with medical equipment and long hours. Installing solar power is a smart way to slash high electrical bills and gain energy independence.
Over 22 metric tons of carbon dioxide will be eliminated during the life of the solar power system. This impact is equivalent to removing air pollution produced by almost 54,000 miles of driving annually or the pollutants removed by over 28 acres of trees in one year.
SolarCraft is 100% Employee-Owned and one of the largest green-tech employers based in the North Bay for over 35 years. SolarCraft delivers Clean Energy Solutions for homes and businesses including Solar Electric, and Battery / Energy Storage. With over 8,000 customers, our team of dedicated employee-partners is proud to have installed more solar energy systems than any other company in the North Bay.
