This commercial solar pv installation in San Leandro, California was a great upgrade to an industrial manufacturing site with a huge appetite for power and savings. The 3-phase process took much coordination of re-roofing and removal of large equipment and structures from roof areas.  The build timeline was incredibly tight, as the customer was seeking completion for tax credit in 3.5 months from the date the contract was signed. Sun Light & Power designed and substantially constructed the system in coordination with a full re-roof of the facility in less than four months.
