Alvarado Bakery Adds Solar Power for 40% of Energy Needs

The Alvarado Street Bakery, an organic bakery in Petaluma, Calif., has completed the installation of 1,722 onto its rooftop with the expectation to generate nearly 40% of its energy needs. The solar power array covers the 1.5-acre surface of the bakery’s roof with 1,722, 235-watt solar panels from Sharp.

The rooftop array will provide the bakery with 404 kilowatts of energy, and is expected to help reduce carbon emissions by more than 390 metric tons annually. According to Sharp, the array is installed on a special rack system that minimizes roof attachments and prevents water leaks.

The Alvarado Street Bakery solar power project was designed and installed by Stellar Energy, a provider of solar energy integration systems.

The Alvarado Street Bakery will use Sharp’s NU-235F1 solar modules, designed for harsh operating conditions and offers high power output per square foot of solar array, said Sharp.
