Home » Blog » Ritz Hotel Press Conference

Last week SunWater Solar took part in a press conference held atop the Ritz Hotel, a San Francisco multifamily affordable housing building where SunWater Solar installed a 695 square-foot solar water-heating system. The event was organized and attended by representatives from PG&E, the Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation (TNDC) and the San Francisco Department of the Environment.

Representatives from several Bay Area multifamily housing organizations also attended the event. Speakers, including SunWater Solar’s Patrick O’Boyle, presented on topics such as the Ritz installation, CSI-Thermal rebates and the benefits of solar water heating. After the speakers’ presentations, Patrick showed off the solar collectors and mechanical room on a tour for interested attendees.

SunWater Solar thanks everyone who attended and helped organize the event. We are happy to see respected organizations working to educate the public, especially multifamily building owners, on solar water-heating technology.

The press conference was covered in PG&E’s “Currents” online news portal, and by KTSF 26 (TV spot in Mandarin Chinese).
