Codding Enterprises’ Sonoma Mountain Village will dedicate is newest solar installation on September 30th. The massive arrays, provided by Stellar Energy, are comprised of 4,928 solar panel modules, generating 1.158 Megawatts that when combined with the existing on-site solar, will power 100% of the business campus. The campus includes five large buildings that are being renovated for reuse in this state-of-the-art green mixed-use community. In a solar industry "first," this system was financed in part by $1.6M in financing from private capital made available by Clean Fund to the Sonoma County Energy Independence Program (SCEIP). The funds provided for a loan to Sonoma Mountain Village through SCEIP and their Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program. PACE provides long-term financing for energy improvements through special tax assessments. This newest solar power system adds to an existing 1.14MW array allowing the entire business campus to provide enough power for 2,000 homes. Sonoma Mountain Village now boasts over 181,000 square feet, or almost 4 acres, of rooftop solar panels.
