Foster City Library and Community Center PV
Canopy-mounted solar PV system at library and community center
Foster City, CA
195.2 kW DC system
Cupertino worked with the Foster City Library and Community Center to install a 195.2 kilowatt (kW) DC system to produce electricity for the municipal site. Cupertino Electric constructed and installed solar canopies on the roof of the Library and Community Center, as well as carports in the surrounding lots. The roof includes a total of 84.18 kW installed at two elevations, and the parking lot canopy system size totals 109.8 kW. Because it is a public building with a lot of foot traffic and visibility, the canopies were designed with an extremely particular aesthetic in mind.
