The Tuscany Apartments

Carport, Roof Mount

SCS Development contacted Sun Light & Power to design a solar energy solution that would not only provide shade for residents’ cars, but also eliminate the electric bill for the building’s common areas. Amenities include electric vehicle charging stations and a resort-style swimming pool/spa heated by solar thermal, creating modern comfort in a sustainable manner. As a bonus, this market-rate, multi-family apartment complex will receive a five-year performance based incentive (PBI) from Silicon Valley Power.
