By Chris Crowell September 29, 2022 DSD Renewables, a commercial solar developer, operator, and asset owner, has broken ground on two onsite solar canopies at an office park in California. The 957 kW and 429 kW installations, located at Pleasanton Corporate Commons, were facilitated by Black Bear Energy and will be installed behind the meter, offsetting much of the campus' energy load. Pleasanton Corporate Commons is owned by an entity advised by UBS Asset Management.Built and owned by DSD, the canopy projects will not only provide the benefit of covered parking for the adjacent office buildings, but will also provide tenants with access to lower-cost, onsite solar energy, and are expected to generate over 2 million kilowatt hours of energy per year, reducing the campus' carbon footprint significantly.
