Greener Than Thou: Solar Overload on Van Ness

Greener Than Thou is our report on San Francisco’s obsession with all things green, calling bullshit in the poseurs and lavishing praise on those who have secured their place in environmental paradise. Let it mellow longer than most? Holler!


The British Motor building at 901 Van Ness Avenue now hosts the largest solar energy system in San Francisco. 287 kilowatts' worth of integrated solar panels, to be exact— enough enough to power 80 San Francisco homes. Impressive. Now if only if the project's financial backer, Solar City, would play nice with the city and help finance the now-thwarted Public Utilities Commission building.
