California’s Fremont Recycling & Transfer Station is the first solar-powered material recovery and solid waste transfer facility in Alameda County thanks to the collaboration between Solar Power and BLT Enterprises. The 398kW solar PV system includes rooftop racking and parking shade structures, which are set to produce over 587,000kWh of electricity every year. Solar Power oversaw the design and construction of the solar project.
California State Assemblyman Bob Wieckowski was on hand, along with other State and local representatives, and applauded the commissioning of the solar system saying, “By becoming the first solar-powered waste recovery and transfer facility in Alameda County, the Fremont Recycling and Transfer Station continues to be a leader on environmental sustainability issues. By going green with solar power, the station is a bright example of how California can create jobs and reduce energy costs statewide by modernizing facilities.”
