Los Angeles-based fashion retailer Forever 21 plans to install a 5.1 MW rooftop solar power system at its headquarters.
PermaCity is designing and installing a system for Forever 21 using SunPower solar panels mounted on its own SolarStrap racking system.
The project is unfolding under the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power's (LADWP) feed-in tariff program, qualifying for both the FiT100 Set Pricing and the Solar Incentive programs. The project is expected to be completed by early fall.
‘We applaud Forever 21 for planning the largest solar rooftop system in the city and the third largest in the state,’ says Marcie Edwards, LADWP general manager. ‘It's a great example of how a business can use both of LADWP's customer-focused, local solar programs to generate solar power for their own use, as well as to benefit the entire city with clean renewable energy.’
