California Deploys a 470-Kilowatt Solar Power System

The State of California unveiled last week a new 470-kilowatt solar power system on the roof of its Franchise Tax Board headquarters in Sacramento. The 50,000-square-foot photovoltaic system will provide about half of the power needs for the building. PowerLight Corporation designed and manufactured the system and installed it in less than six weeks. See the California Department of General Services press release.
