Sun Green Anaheim Rooftop Solar Solution

SunGreen Systems is expert in the design and construction of commercial solar systems. SunGreen specializes in the production of sustainable, smart energy solutions.  

SunGreen has designed and installed a new 521.5 KW solar power system in Anaheim, CA, for YKK U.S.A., Inc. This new photovoltaic system generates a lot of power.  Enough to meet 97.6 percent of the energy needs of YKK’s zipper manufacturing facility.  Of particular note, this is the fourth largest solar array in operation in the city of Anaheim.

SunGreen designed and installed this system using 1,968 solar panels provided by Mitsubishi Electric. The total power output for the new solar system is 521.5 kW of DC power, with an annual power capacity of 843,336 kWh. The new solar installation delivers all the power needed for YKK’s Anaheim plant.  This solar solution helps to fulfill the company’s mission of environmental protection.  It also helps to ensure sustainability for YKK's global operations.

“This is the first solar system we designed and installed for YKK.  We are proud of this project,” said Rick Hsu, CEO of SunGreen Systems. “This solar installation will be able to meet all YKK’s power requirements. It will help YKK to reduce greenhouse gases and to promote sustainable operations worldwide.”

The new YKK solar system in Anaheim will offset 896 tons of carbon dioxide each year.  This amount is the same as an estimated 27,000 tons of CO2 over the life of the solar system. This will have the same effect as planting 4,484 trees each year, or 134,520 trees over the life of the system.

Using solar power at YKK’s Anaheim facility is a goal for the company. It supports the company’s 1994 Environmental Charter.  YKK supports conservation and preserving natural resources for future generations. YKK has 109 affiliated organizations.  YKK affiliates are located in more than 70 countries, with more than 39,000 employees.
