Solar Panel Installation at Mission Hall

Facilities Services is pleased to announce that SunPower solar panels will be installed over Mission Hall roof starting in mid-September.  Construction is expected to continue through mid-November 2018, and the new solar system will be operational by the end of 2018.

Mission Hall’s renewable energy source is estimated to reduce the amount of CO2 emitted by 1,318 metric tons in the first 25-years of operations and yield cost savings of roughly $395,000 over the same period.

In advance of installation, our partners in UCSF Real Estate will communicate project logistics, including specific times when construction activity could be disruptive.
