Descanso Solar Power: Doerr Residence

The Doerr family took advantage of substantial rebates via the Rebuild a Greener San Diego Program after his home endured fire damage during the 2003 wildfires. With a smaller rooftop and an area adjacent to the home shrouded in trees, Sullivan Solar Power installed the system on a jagged stony slope 500 feet from the home. The system serves as yet another testimony to Sullivan's ability to deliver on a project regardless of difficulty.


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

  • Generate 7,800 to 10,400 kilowatt hours of clean renewable solar power.
  • Avoid the creation of 12,896 pounds of harmful carbon dioxide released into our air.
  • Provide the system owner with $2,288 in Solar Power Savings.
