Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation has selected Solar Power, Inc to install a 158 kW DC solar photovoltaic system at the Fox Studios Lot located in Century City, California. The solar system will be mounted on the roof of Fox’s Building 99.

Solar Power, in a collaborative effort with Pacific Edison, will install a SkyMount commercial rooftop system which uses its dynamic structure, tilt angle, and unique mounting capabilities to optimize the performance of the system’s solar modules.

“This project is an important addition to Fox’s ongoing sustainability initiative and we are very happy to be getting it started,” said Hal Haenal, Senior Vice President of Fox Studios Operations. “This marks our first venture into on-site renewable energy and the teams at Solar Power, Inc. and Pacific Edison have helped to make the decision a very easy one for us.”

The SkyMount installation is scheduled to be completed this summer and could be the first of many solar projects across the Fox Studio Lot in the future.
