Latest Advancements in Solar and Energy Storage

Join Sullivan Solar Power's nationally-certified energy practitioners and San Diego Padres' Facilities Services Director for an electrifying conversation on solar energy and battery integration for residential and commercial applications. Presenters will discuss the fundamentals of solar energy, recent and upcoming policy changes, advancements in energy storage and current incentives. This lunch and learn will also highlight the largest solar power system in Major League Baseball at Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres. The system utilizes 716 high-efficiency, 470-watt Sunpower solar modules, and will produce over 12 million kilowatt hours over the next 25 years. It is the highest profile solar project on a San Diego facility since the city’s commitment to 100 percent renewable energy by 2035.
