Grand Pacific Resorts manages vacation properties up the California coast with locations also in Hawaii, Utah, as well as in the California desert resort communities. The company wanted its headquarters in Carlsbad, California to maximize energy cost savings. Additionally, the company headquarters’ 2021 clean energy effort aligns nicely with the luxury locations’ natural beauty as well as Grand Pacific’s BeCause Destination Matters program of giving back to wonderful causes.
The design and construction of the 888-panel system became a study in space efficiency to create the highest-producing system the roof’s footprint could support. The energy goals necessitated maximizing the flat rooftop that contained the typical equipment and vents of a large office building. HES Solar designed a dual tilt array that utilized nearly every square inch of available rooftop space.
Delivering a 75% energy offset, the high-producing SunPower X Series E330 panels set a quick 3.9-year payback period. The client also benefited from federal and state incentives and looks forward toward an energy bill savings of $2,845,455 over the first 25 years of production.
