Santa Rosa hospital solar project can power more than 200 homes a year

June 24, 2019

Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital in Santa Rosa, Calif., launched new carport solar panels that have been installed over its main parking lot, according to an article on the North Bay Business Journal website.

There are also panels on the roof of Shea House, which houses families of hospitalized children.

The 4,627 solar modules covering approximately 565 parking spaces will support 40% of the main hospital’s electricity. The panels are expected to generate 2.4 million kilowatt-hours of clean energy annually, which would be equivalent to powering 206 homes in one year.

Shea House, which was rebuilt after being destroyed in the October 2017 wildfires, had 10 solar panels installed on its rooftop, supporting 89 percent of needed electricity on the site.
