The GoSolarSF program, run by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, provides financial incentives for San Francisco property owners to install solar panels on their property. Since its introduction, the program has paid $19.4 million in incentives and completed 2,583 solar panel installations in The City.
Lee said, “The GoSolarSF program and the Davies Symphony Hall Solar Array demonstrate our commitment to installing more solar arrays in San Francisco to increase our renewable energy generation and create local jobs.”
The 558-panel solar system unveiled at Davies will provide roughly 15 percent of the facility's electricity. It is one of 16 solar arrays used by SFPUC to power city buildings.
“The City continues to expand our municipal solar portfolio,” said SFPUC General Manager Harlan Kelly, Jr. “Our Hetch Hetchy power system and in-City solar network provide cost-effective, greenhouse gas-free energy to our electricity customers like Davies Symphony Hall, SFO, City Hall, General Hospital, MUNI and many more.”
