Largest Solar Installation in Fresno Area

Apr. 11 /CSRwire/ - LOS GATOS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 11, 2007--The California Air National Guard is switching to solar power for the operation of its armory in Fresno. The Guard hired MCC Construction and Akeena Solar (OTCBB:AKNS), already one of the state's biggest residential installer of solar systems, to do the multimillion-dollar job.

Many government agencies are discovering that there never has been a better time to switch to solar, avoiding volatile and increasingly high prices for conventional energy sources.

The first phase of the Fresno system will produce the equivalent of the power used by 34 average households. By the time the entire system is finished, it will produce the equivalent of power used by 100 households.

Barry Cinnamon, CEO of Akeena, stated, "We are thrilled to be showcasing Akeena's design and integration talents in the Central Valley of California. The hot climate and high electricity rates have been the driving force behind the astounding growth for the solar power industry in this region. We are happy to work with California Air National Guard base to produce clean renewable power while helping the base to save money."
