Siemens Finishes Solar Electrification Project

March 08, 1994|Jack Searles

Camarillo-based Siemens Solar Industries has completed what it calls the largest solar home electrification project in the United States.

The project, which will provide photovoltaic or solar power to 108 homes in the Sacramento area, was installed by Siemens in cooperation with the Sacramento Municipal Utility District.

The district is seeking clean, renewable power sources that will minimize the so-called greenhouse effect.

The project uses Siemens M55 solar panels that generate a total of 400 kilowatts of electricity. Each home in the project is equipped with solar panels that will generate power throughout the grid.

Siemens, the world's largest supplier of solar products, hopes to install similar systems worldwide.
