Doors Open on First Phase of Largest Zero Net Energy Development in U.S.
A four-megawatt photovoltaic system is expected to meet the energy needs of the first 1,980 apartment residents and commercial spaces. On the horizon is a biodigester, based on technology developed at UC Davis that would convert campus table scraps, animal and plant waste into energy.
The general contractor is Carmel Partners’ construction division, CP Construction West.
Other principals on the project include Lim Chang Rohling & Associates, Pasadena, architect, single-family homes; MVE Institutional, Oakland, architect, student apartments; Studio E Architects, San Diego, architect, mixed-use buildings; Cunningham Engineering, Sacramento, civil engineer; and SWA Group, San Francisco, landscape architect.
