Washington Prime Group announced as part of its sustainability efforts the completion of the solar panel system at Weberstown Mall, located in Stockton, California. The system was planned to be approximately 1.3 MW.
Under the terms of the agreement, Safari Energy developed, financed and built the project, with Washington Prime Group to purchase all the electricity generated by the system from Safari. The rooftop solar system at Weberstown Mall allows the company to convert unused roof space into a productive source of energy for the center. While significant cost savings are not expected for Washington Prime Group or its tenants, the system is expected to generate over 1,919,874 kilowatt hours of green energy per year.
“We applaud Washington Prime Group’s vision on sustainability, and are proud to deliver green energy solutions for the team from coast to coast,” said David Heyman, CEO of Safari Energy. “The Weberstown Mall project is our second with WPG and Safari Energy’s 32nd commercial-scale solar project completed in California, and we look forward to many more in the pipeline in the state.”
In 2019, Washington Prime Group announced the completion of a solar panel system at Jefferson Valley Mall, located in Yorktown Heights, New York. The company is working to establish a long-term goal for the installation of renewable energy generation technology and is currently exploring opportunities for additional solar panel projects across its portfolio.
