DSD Renewables and Black Bear Energy, in partnership with The Muller Company, a real estate investment, development, and management firm, will install two behind-the-meter solar canopies on parking garages and surface-level parking at the Orange Executive Tower in Orange, California and the Main Street Tower Center in Santa Ana, California.
Through a power purchase agreement, nearby tenants will have access to the lower-cost, onsite solar energy generated by the 804 kW and 981.26 kW canopy systems. With a 20-year lifespan, the canopies are expected to generate over 2.8 GWh of clean energy per year and reduce annual carbon dioxide emissions by 649 tons.
“Installing onsite solar is an essential way for The Muller Company to generate renewable energy and demonstrate our commitment to sustainability. Creating long-term value for The Muller Company and providing our tenants with clean energy are all reasons we are committed to pursuing onsite solar projects,” said Sue McDonough, The Muller Company’s Director of Tenant and Capital Improvements.
