Akeena Solar Completes PV System In Napa Valley


Akeena Solar Inc., a designer and installer of solar power systems, has completed an installation at Lafitte Cork & Capsule USA's Napa Valley, Calif., facility. Lafitte is the first cork producer in California to go solar, the companies say.

The installation of 262 solar panels will generate enough clean energy to eliminate the production of more than 1.4 million pounds of carbon dioxide, 1,305 pounds of nitrogen oxide and 384 pounds of sulfur dioxide over its 30-year life. The solar system can be monitored in real-time at the Lafitte Web site, www.lafitte-usa.com.
