Downey Solar Power: Lai Residence
Downey, located in southeast Los Angeles, is not only famous for being the birthplace of the Apollo space program, but its dedication to renewable energy. Its suburban-style housing is perfect for solar panels systems and sits in a county with solar-friendly policy.
This 4.5kW solar energy system installed by Sullivan Solar Power has produced nearly 28,000kWh of electricity since late 2007! Reinforcing the fact that citizens in Downey are committed to saving the planet from fossil fuels, and their wallet from the utility!
