The Solar Energy Research Center, which was completed in 2014, consumes approximately 40,000 square feet. The center houses approximately 75 people and will allow the research facility to develop the science and technology needed to create future transportation fuels from sunlight. The building had a targeted goal of being LEED Silver, with a focus on energy efficiency. The facility was designed using renewable or recyclable materials to the maximum extent possible, along with a “green” roof that will maximize natural light.
Pan-Pacific performed Fuel Oil work on the project installing an above ground belly tank with remote fill and monitoring capabilities.
