In 2012 Omnicell began construction on a new facility located in Mountain View, CA. Omnicell enlisted the services of Vista Solar when they began exploring energy efficiency measures that could be integrated into the design of the facility. Due to the design of the building and the need for large sight screens and ventilation units on the rooftop, a roof-mounted solar solution was quickly ruled out. Soon after, discussions began on customizing a solar canopy structure that could be integrated into the two story parking garage planned for the campus.
Vista Solar’s engineers went to work with local steel fabricators to design a custom canopy structure that would hide the required electrical wiring and blend in seamlessly with the aesthetics of the campus architecture. The resulting 151 kW solar system provides energy savings for Omnicell, covered parking for employees and is a testament to Omnicell’s commitment to the environment.
