Gold Line Operations Campus unveiledHot Purple Energy was in the news recently for the Monrovia Gold Line Project. Hot Purple Energy helped in achieving the Gold Level LEED-certified project of this type, featuring state-of-the-art environmental-friendly elements and among them, a whopping 714 frame-less solar panels configured on canopies that could power dozens of homes.

Balian and Parsons Chief Architect for Rail & Transit Systems Roland Genick, as well as experts from Hot Purple Energy and CONTECH Engineered Solutions described and demonstrated some of the elements that led to that certification:

  • A comprehensive storm water collection and filtration system designed to capture and treat the first 112,000 gallons of rainfall
  • An on-site 178.5-kilowatt solar panel array that will generate an average of 22,000 kilowatt hours of electricity each month
  • Drought tolerant landscaping and smart technology irrigation that will reduce water consumption in the landscaped areas by 50%
  • A car wash facility that will utilize only recycled, reclaimed water for its 60,000 gallons of daily usage
