Kaiser plans solar systems at 15 sites in California

San Francisco Chronicle, March 31, 2010

Kaiser Permanente plans to install solar systems at 15 of its facilities throughout California, together generating a maximum of 15 megawatts of electricity. Kaiser will spend $95.6 million over 20 years for power from the solar panels. That's roughly the same amount Kaiser would have spent to buy the same amount of electricity from the grid. On average, each of the Kaiser hospitals, health centers, and other facilities involved will get 10% of its electricity from the solar arrays, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
