A 2MW US government-sponsored affordable housing project, owned and operated by the Housing Authority of the County of Santa Barbara (HACSB) has used 7,200 SolarWorld panels on 863 unit roofs. This is the largest project of its type so far in the US, according to SolarWorld.
“We are honored to have been selected by HACSB to perform this unprecedented project in our community based on our prior track record in affordable housing,” said Paul Metzner, chief operating officer of Planet Solar. “HACSB is a recognized industry leader in its approach to affordable housing and the first to embark on a project of this magnitude. We are pleased HACSB trusted Planet Solar and SolarWorld to pioneer this together.”
SolarWorld installer Planet Solar, headquartered in Santa Barbara, handled the installation.
