Bella Vita Apartments in National City

Commercial Case Study



Bella Vita Apartments is a luxurious 70-unit multi-family community in National City that was focused on becoming energy efficient; being located in San Diego there is often heavy energy use during the summers. 


Based on the energy usage at the Bella Vita’s apartments, HES Solar designed 3 systems specifically created to offset each building’s annual electricity needs. The community has a total of 124 panels that can be expanded to adjust for future loads such as car chargers, etc. 

Customer Benefit

The Bella Vita community has an annual production amount of 69,741 kWh. This has resulted in lowered energy costs while also contributing to clean green energy use. The community was also able to take advantage of state rebates under the California Solar Incentive program.
