The environmentally friendly fire station at Throckmorton Ridge features a solar photovoltaic (PV) system designed and installed by SPG Solar, Inc. The station replaces one that has served the department since the mid 1950’s to better suit the needs of today’s fire service. The pv system will provide over 40% of the station’s annual electricity needs, with an expected production of over 67,000 kWh each year. “We commend the Marin County Fire Department and Throckmorton Ridge Station for their commitment to the environment through their use of clean, renewable energy. Over a 25-year period, the Throckmorton Ridge station is expected to displace over 2 million pounds of greenhouse gas emissions” said Dan Thompson, President and CEO of SPG Solar.
