The American Auxiliary of Paris Missions (French Clergy) retrofitted their SF headquarters with solar PV in order “to save the planet, little by little, by producing clean ecologically sound energy”. The small roof space was a challenge, so much that CCEnergy needed to ask the SF Fire Chief to grant a variance. Locating the beams in the old structure proved difficult, but certainly not impossible.
