Good Earth Natural Food Store, established in 1969, was located at 1966 Sir Francis Drake Blvd, Fairfax, CA, since the year 2000. In 2012, Good Earth moved to 720 Center Blvd, and doubled in size. CCEnergy had installed a solar thermal system on the location at 1966 Sir Francis Drake, so when it came time for Good Earth to decide on a solar company for the hot water system on their new store, CCEnergy was the natural choice.

The solar thermal system was installed at the same time that the construction for the new store occurred, giving CCEnergy a chance to integrate it into the building design.

The system pre-heats water to 120 degrees with the power of the sun, allowing Good Earth to save money and protect natural resources by burning far less oil to heat their water.
