Raymon and Alan Dones (right) added a
198 kilowatt solar array to the Alameda
County Social Services office building,
Oct 29, 2007. The building was built in
OneCal Bank financed the panels and
their installation.

Building Size- 101,000 square feet

System Size- 16,000-square-foot, 198-
kilowatt array (1100 200 watt solar panels
System Costs-$2.6 Million
PG&E rebate - $729,000

The system provides a third of the

building energy supply.

Renee Co-OP Proto-type Solar System
Fresh Meadows, N.Y.--U.S. Energy Group, a firm that develops and integrates energy
control, monitoring and analysis systems for large residential properties, has launched
USE Solar, a new solar energy initiative that focuses on the potential for multifamily and
commercial buildings to use solar power.

Quixotic Systems Inc., a solar energy company offering consulting, design

and engineering services, and Tristate Solar Inc., a solar energy system design,
installation and service company, are working with U.S. Energy Group on the
Renee and will install the photovoltaic system, which will consist of 142 solar
modules of 200 watts each. Quixotic is designing the system and Tristate is
working as a project integrator.

The solar system is projected to provide 17 percent to 20 percent of The Renees

common area electricity. Additionally, the system is projected to prevent the
production of approximately 27,139 pounds of carbon dioxide each year.

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA)
is providing a $100,000 rebate incentive for this project, which may also receive
federal and state tax credits and a property abatement tax of 8.7 percent for four
years. In addition, the co-op can sell back the unused electricity to the grid and
the tax credits will be passed along to the residents.
Affordable Housing California Solar incentives July, 2007

Residential Areas of Affordable Housing Projects: The *EPBI

amount starting in 2007 is $3.50/watt. This applies to
affordable housing projects of all sizes.

Common Areas of Affordable Housing Projects: The EPBI level

starting in July 2007 is $3.30/watt. This incentive level applies
to solar electric systems serving the common areas of
affordable housing projects.

EPBI-Expected Performance Base Incentive

DSIRE is a comprehensive source of State
Incentives for
Renewable Energy

This smart energy project reduces the jail's use of utility-generated electricity by 30 percent
through solar power generation and energy conservation. Clean energy is generated by a 1.18
Megawatt installation consisting of three acres of solar photovoltaic panels.
