Established on the Scripps Institution of Oceanography campus, UCSDęs Marine Ecosystem Sensing, Observation and Modeling (MESOM) Laboratory will accommodate scholars who research shoreline environments and fisheries to deliver evidence that is capable of supporting predictions on a coastal ecosystemęs reaction to changes in the environment. It is here where Sullivan Solar Power installed a roof-mounted solar power system. Comprised of 264 Sharp solar modules which were manufactured in the United States, this installation is expected to produce 60,700 watts daily. The establishment is now on course to develop into the first research facility at UCSD to be awarded the U.S. Green Building Councilęs Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum certification.


This SDG&E solar power installation by Sullivan Solar Power is part of the solar energy revolution and generating clean, renewable electricity for SDG&E UCSD MESOM. On average, each year a solar energy system this size will:

  • Generate 91,050 to 121,400 kilowatt hours of clean renewable solar power.
  • Avoid the creation of 150,536 pounds of harmful carbon dioxide released into our air.
  • Provide the system owner with $26,708 in Solar Power Savings.
