Installation of 688 solar panels on SFPUC headquarters

Date: 8 November 2011
BASS Electric announced it has started installing the first 50 of the 688 solar panels that will ultimately be installed on the LEED Platinum-certified San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) headquarters.

The sleek, glass building is a global model for green commercial building construction. "We are proud to help the City of San Francisco in its march towards energy independence," said Jennifer Trevino, COO of BASS Electric. "No city is more progressive and innovative than San Francisco, and the SFPUC Building is a monument to our success."

In addition to the clean energy generation through photovoltaic panels, the new SFPUC headquarters features of the building include 100 percent onsite waste water treatment, installation of low flow toilets and waterless urinals, 45 percent daylight harvesting, and the consumption of 55 percent less energy and 32 percent less electricity demands from the main power grid.

The building has not only received the LEED Platinum rating from the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), new SFPUC headquarters was honored with two awards last spring from the American Institute of Architects' (AIA) San Francisco chapter.

Last year BASS Electric, the premier completed the installation of 28,000 Suntech PV modules over San Francisco's Sunset Reservoir. The installation, which covers an area equivalent to twelve football fields, became California's largest solar PV system and the nation's largest municipal solar installation.
