SAN RAFAEL, Calif. - SunLink® Corp. has announced that its roof module mounting system has begun shipping for one of the nation’s largest municipal solar installations, a 5 megawatt project located on the Sunset Reservoir in San Francisco. Chosen by Recurrent Energy, an independent power producer and a leading developer of solar power projects, SunLink’s system will be used to mount over 23,000 Suntech solar modules on the flat, seismically retrofitted rooftop of the Reservoir.

“We are pleased to have been awarded this project, particularly given its magnitude and advancement of the city of San Francisco’s renewable energy goals,” said Christopher Tilley, CEO, SunLink. “Our flagship roof mounting solution is one of the most widely adopted in the industry due to our extensive engineering, design expertise, and ability to work within a project’s constraints such as this one, which required no penetrations in the Reservoir’s roof surface.”

“We have worked in cooperation with SunLink on numerous solar projects and we continue to be impressed with their value-added services and reliable mounting technology,” said Arno Harris, CEO, Recurrent Energy. “We look forward to furthering our relationship with SunLink throughout the development of this large distributed-scale solar power installation.”

Upon completion in the fall of this year, the Sunset Reservoir project is estimated to more than triple municipal solar generation in San Francisco and reduce carbon emissions by over 100,000 metric tons.
