Mission Pie goes solar!

February 29th, 2012

This week, Luminalt is installing over at our neighbor, Mission Pie. This fantastic pie shop sources their ingredients locally and serves as a community meeting space.

SF Weekly's Jesse Hirsch covered our solar installation at Mission Pie:

"​Mission Pie, already one of the few restaurants to achieve green certification, just ramped up its commitment to sustainability with the installation of rooftop solar panels to provide up to a third of their power. "It keeps getting windier in the Mission. Maybe we should have gone with wind power," joked co-owner Karen Heisler.

Solar power has been on the Mission Pie wishlist since it opened in 2007, but starting a food business is time-consuming and costly; Heisler and co-owner Krystin Rubin had other projects to tackle first. When they finally started talking to Claire Hill of the small SF solar company Luminalt last year, they were ready to take the plunge.
