Project Brief

Baker Commercial Solar was chosen to install the roof-mounted solar PV system on this 45,000 SF LEED Platinum, Research Institute Genome Laboratory located on the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) campus in La Jolla, CA. J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI) is a large multidisciplinary genomic-focused organization formed in 2006 through the merger of multiple affiliated and legacy organizations.

The new construction of this PV system helped JCVI reach what they believe to be the first carbon-neutral laboratory facility in the world. All on-site electricity is generated through the PV roof system.

This project was designed and engineered by SunPower.
