San Clemente Assisted Living Solar Power

San Clemente Villas, a beautiful assisted living facility, had an ambitious plan to save money and go green.  They decided to install not one, not two, but three solar electrical systems.  One was installed on the rooftop, one on a solar carport, and one on a steep hillside.  Go Green Solar Solutions was chosen for the projects because of their long PV history and their reputation with San Clemente Building & Safety for making difficult installations go smoothly.  The hillside system posed the biggest challenge because of the unstable, shifting soil, but GGSS’s years of experience turned the unusable hillside into a solar power plant.  San Clemente Villas now boasts the largest PV system on an assisted living facility in the United States.  With rebates and tax incentives paying for 87% of the project, the solar electrical system will pay for itself in 4 years, and save the owners over $16 million dollars over the next 30 years.  The hillside solar electrical system, visible to thousands of commuters on the 5 freeway, is a powerful illustration of the benefits of solar energy.
