On May 1, 2012, Stronghold Engineering, Inc. participated in a ribbon cutting event that marked a momentous occasion for the County of Santa Clara. This Ribbon Cutting Ceremony celebrated the commissioning of over 5 megawatts of solar power generation systems. This celebration was held under a Stronghold’s installed solar generation carport located in the parking lot at the County’s Sheriff Complex. The ceremony was marked by several key speakers who thanked Stronghold for their efforts. Key speakers include; Supervisor, Dave Cortese and Supervisor, Mike Wasserman from the County of Santa Clara Board of Supervisors. The Board of Supervisors were also joined by Gary Graves the Chief Operation Officer for the County of Santa Clara and Russell Hancock who is the President and CEO of the Joint Venture Silicon Valley. The celebration culminated in the ceremonial switching of the power for the Solar Systems. Stronghold donated the ceremonial switch which was hand made by Project Manager, Jason Harris. The key speakers Gary Graves, Russell Hancock, Mike Wasserman, and Dave Cortese all simultaneously switched the ceremonial switch, which turned on the County of Santa Clara Generating Green Sign. This was another project success to be proud of for Stronghold and a proud moment for the County of Santa Clara as it now generates over 5 megawatts of clean energy.
