Solar Panel Installation
We are excited that the solar panels are now installed in the West parking lot, and are working with a new vendor to activate the panels by early winter.
Once the project is complete, the panels will reduce San Mateo Medical Center’s electricity spending by $300,000 every year—a 19% reduction. Over the 30-year life of the panels, that translates to $9.8 million saved that can be spent on public services.
San Mateo Medical Center will reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by more than 1,000 metric tons every year—or enough energy to power 98 homes. People living in this neighborhood will all be part of a community that supports clean energy and helps to reduce our carbon footprint.
