Roseville Solar Electric Helps Hospital Go Green

Roseville Solar Electric helps hospital go green in Modesto, California.

Kaiser Permanente is one of many hospitals throughout California that is going green. Sutter Health, UC Davis Medical Center and Catholic Health West are among many that are also paving the way toward a more green, sustainable environment for their patients and staff.

Roseville Solar Electric installed the photovoltaic solar system on the Kaiser Permanente Modesto campus.

Their energy savings is phenomenal. According to PG&E and Kaiser officials,

"Over the past 12 months, Kaiser has been credited with saving 14.5 million kilowatts in Northern and Central California, the equivalent of powering 2,100 homes and taking 1,100 cars off the road. It got rebates totaling $1.6 million and saved $1.7 million on energy."

The cost of the materials and installation was roughly $563,000, but they generate 55,000 kilowatts per year according to Doug DiFranco, a Kaiser spokesman in Modesto.

1,576 Solar Panels

According to Comstock's magazine, there are 1,576 solar panels powering the Lincoln Raley's grocery store.

The grocery store chain is based in West Sacramento and they expect to save 300,000 kilowatts per year on electricity. That is the equivalent to 20% of the stores annual power usage.

Referral From a Fellow Landowner

Recently, a Google Alert came across our email inbox and we were curious about it's contents. So, we opened it and realized it was a wonderful testimonial from a happy customer.

“We have discovered and have now conducted business with a company specializing in solar installations of all types. They are extremely competitive in their pricing (much less expensive than anyone in the immediate area) and are very competent. Knowing at least one of our neighbors has encountered problems with her system and the after-sale support, we wanted this information made available to others who might be looking into solar installations.”

Happy customers like this one are why we are in business and doing what we love to do!
