Residential solar company SunPower said it plans to install more than 1 GW of solar power at an affordable housing community in Elk Grove, California.

The 2,649-panel system is expected to help save the 387-unit Poppy Grove apartment housing community about $2.7 million over 15 years, SunPower said in a Nov. 14 press release. The apartment community, built by Brown Construction and overseen by UrbanCore Development and E. Smith & Co., spans some 16 acres.

“Solar can effectively provide affordable energy making it a highly valued amenity for affordable housing communities,” Matt Brost, vice president of new homes sales for SunPower, said in a news release. “We remain steadfast in our commitment to provide all Americans access to rooftop solar, no matter their income level or if they rent or own their homes.”
