CARLSBAD, Calif., April 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Pacifica Senior Living (Pacifica), a division of Pacifica Companies, announced last week that it has selected Cenergy Power (Cenergy) to install its rooftop photovoltaic (PV) system at the Meridian at Lake San Marcos (Meridian), a northern San Diego based senior community. The project is expected to significantly lower the annual utility expenses of the senior community currently accommodating approximately 250 apartment homes and a 22,000 sq. ft. clubhouse.
Managed Green, an energy management service provider, facilitated the bidding process which guided Pacifica through the installer selection process from start to finish. Managed Green's expertise in evaluating and managing energy opportunities, allowed Pacifica to award the solar integrator best suited for the proposed solar opportunity.
