Bishop Ranch's Massive Energy Storage Center Expands

Bishop Ranch’s Massive Energy Storage Center Expands

Sunset Development and DSD Renewables have begun Phase Two of its multicampus solar and energy storage installation at Bishop Ranch, the 600-acre, mixed-use development in San Ramon, CA. The new phase will add 35,000 solar panels, and when completed in early 2024, will produce over 22 million kWh of clean, renewable energy annually that will offset Bishop Ranch’s energy usage by 90%.

“As we continue to transform Bishop Ranch into a vibrant downtown, DSD remains the ideal partner to assist us in getting one step closer to our ultimate goal of relying 100% on clean, renewable energy,” said Sunset Development CEO Alexander Mehran, Jr. 

Phase One of the solar installation produces over 2 million kWh of renewable energy annually, the equivalent of removing 7,500 cars from the road. According to Sunset Development, the system has enabled City Center Bishop Ranch to become the largest shopping center in the world to be awarded LEED Platinum certification.
