Roseville-based solar power company SUNworks said it is partnering with Atkinson Homes to provide solar power for new Northern California subdivisions.
“The partnership between Atkinson Homes and SUNworks to complete 200 homes complements our residential retrofit division nicely,” said Abe Emard, CEO of SUNworks, in a statement. “We expect our New Home Solar Division to grow exponentially over the next few years and potentially become one of the largest residential divisions within the sector.”
Yuba City-based Atkinson Construction and Development has built subdivisions in the Yuba-Sutter area since the 1980s. The company said it aims to build homes that are 15 percent more energy-efficient than California’s Title 24 standards.
SUNworks designs, installs and manages solar systems for agricultural, commercial and residential customers. Earlier this year, SUNworks became a wholly owned subsidiary of Solar3D Inc., the Santa Barbara-based developer of three-dimensional solar-cell technology.
