UGE Selected by Kilroy Realty to Supply Solar System for New Dropbox Office

Solar Array Will Maximize the Renewable Resources at 333 Brannan St. Location in Downtown San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Aug 20, 2014) - UGE (TSX VENTURE: UG) (www.urbangreenenergy.com), a leader in renewable energy solutions for global enterprise customers, has been selected by Kilroy Realty to design and supply the solar energy system at Dropbox's new LEED Platinum San Francisco office. The custom photovoltaic array will harness solar energy to produce power on-site at Dropbox, offsetting the electricity used in the new six-story commercial building.


UGE designed the 25.2kW solar PV system to enhance efficiency and sustainability, analyzing the specific solar resources available at the 333 Brannan St. location and utilizing its advanced proprietary site assessment technology. The resulting renewable energy system incorporates 84 300-watt solar panels and will be among several sustainable features included at the LEED Platinum building, designed by William McDonough Partners.

"On-site renewable energy will power a sustainable future for Dropbox -- a visible step forward for an innovative company located in the heart of the tech capital of the world," said Scott Van Pelt, Director of Engineering at UGE. "UGE's software tools have played a crucial role in designing efficient solar and wind systems based on site-specific resources, so it's both exciting and fitting that one of our energy solutions will top the headquarters of a leader in cloud technology."

Dropbox joins a growing number of companies powering their facilities with distributed renewable energy. UGE has designed wind, solar, lighting, and battery storage systems for global brands including Whole Foods, Hilton, and Verizon.
