Featured Success Story
California State University, Long Beach
With 4.75 MW of SunPower solar carports, CSULB now generates the most solar power of any CSU campus.
The SunPower® Helix® carports are projected to offset 15% of the university’s annual electricity load. Supporting the campus Climate Action Plan’s sustainability and energy goals, the project also includes 44 electric vehicle charging stations.
