Brentwood, California [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Pinn Brothers Fine Homes, a Northern California homebuilder, recently announced that it is adopting an aggressive regional strategy to standardize solar energy into its building practices. The first community where these solar electric systems will be featured is in the City of Brentwood, where Pinn Brothers has started construction on 455 single-family homes.
Old Country Roofing (OCR), Northern California’s largest roofing company, will install the solar electric systems using its comprehensive turn-key solar roofing solution. Working closely with its supply partner, BP Solar, OCR will install a BP solar electric system on each home.
The homes will feature BP’s solar products for the new home market, including BP Solar EnergyTile roof integrated solar modules and BP Solar Integra low profile solar modules.
Alan Pinn, President and Founder at Pinn Brothers Fine Homes, says his company is dedicated to helping make Brentwood the most solar-friendly city in California while working toward the California Solar Initiative’s goal of having one million solar homes.
“We’re starting in Brentwood, but we plan to take the solar message across all our communities in California,” says Pinn. “We agree with Mayor Taylor that there is no reason to have a roof that doesn’t generate power when having one that does is simple, cost-effective, and extremely beneficial to the environment.”
