Novato-based SPG Solar, a commercial solar power provider, is moving to Petaluma.
The company, which focuses on commercial, industrial and public sector solar installations, will open a new and larger facility at 1039 N. McDowell Blvd. this January.
The 25,000-square foot facility will feature a Research & Design facility with two testing labs, a state-of-the-art warehouse and customer center.
“This is a strategic business move for us, so we looked extensively for just the right location,” said Doug May, CEO of SPG Solar, in a statement. “Petaluma gives us the best possible combination of the right space, a strong business community, and a growing renewable energy sector.”
Being surrounded by other green companies was as important as the bigger space in SPG Solar's move north.
“There are a lot of renewable companies in Petaluma already, so we’re excited to be located next to them,” said Marissa Muller, a director of marketing for SPG Solar.
Started in 2001, SPG Solar initially focused on residential solar installation, but transitioned to commercial installations in 2007. The company develops the All Weather SunSeeker Tracker, a single-axis tracker that produces up to 25 percent more solar energy in all weather conditions.
