SilRay was selected in 2012 to develop a solar array to power the United States Coast Guard’s training facility in Petaluma. Within three months, SilRay had installed over 5,000 panels on three and a half acres — all at no cost to the Coast Guard. The Training Center now pays for power at a below market rate through a Power Purchase Agreement. The Coast Guard made this important step toward solar, so they are not just protecting our waters, but also our environment as a whole.
