Solar panels begin construction in Building 1 and 2 parking lots

As part of our commitment to improving the environment, we are installing solar panels in the parking lot of Building 1 & Building 2.

Kaiser Permanente is committed to developing onsite generation of renewable power to reduce our carbon footprint. Our solar panel installation project supports our goals for improving our environment.

Construction Begins Saturday, February 2.

The period for construction will be Saturday, February 2 to Friday, May 31. During construction, portions of the parking lots near building 1 and 2 will not be accessible.

Parking management services including valet parking will be provided at Building 1 & 2 for members during construction.

We appreciate your patience during this transition.
