By all accounts, Twentieth Century Fox appears to be enjoying the benefits of their new solar installation. So much so, that the film corp. has decided to add an even larger array to its Century City studio complex.

Last March, the studio unveiled a 160kW array installed by Solar Power, Inc. “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.

Earlier this month, SPI announced that they have once again been contracted by Fox to install 230 kilowatts of new rooftop photovoltaics.

“This addition to our existing system more than doubles our onsite solar electricity generation capabilities and is a significant contribution to our ongoing sustainability initiative,” said Haenal. “We are very pleased with the results of the first system SPI developed for us and are happy to have them back to design and install the second phase of our onsite solar system.”

With a total of 390kW, Fox will easily overtake Sony Pictures’ 230kW system – which I believe is currently the largest in Hollywood. What say you Universal? Let’s keep this competitive ball rolling…
