Modern living meets eco-friendly in Mission Valley with the completion of the Revsolar Solar Carports.
Revsolar just completed the solar carports atop the parking structure at Westpark, Mission Valley – San Diego. The Westpark Civita project was created to limit the impact on the environment and keeping with Civita’s commitment to sustainability. West Park incorporates the latest green technology. A photovoltaic solar array is used to power common area electricity consumption and six on-site fuel cells generate clean energy back to the grid, while also providing heat for one of the swimming pools.
“Our solar carport project was a critical element of meeting the sustainable vision that the Grant family wanted to be central to the development,” said CEO of Revsolar, Brett Jarman. Revsolar was founded on the similar mission of bringing solar to homes and businesses at competitive prices, and within the tight budgets that are critical in today’s business. “Our quality and prices can compete with any solar developer in the US today, and in most cases we can bring a better price with our unique system of project oversight.”
West Park is also planned to feature a high efficiency irrigation system, WaterSense® fixtures, Energy Star appliances, LED lighting, and hydronic HVAC systems. A smart design ensures that you will use less water and electricity throughout your day. Residents have access to electric-vehicle charging stations and the community’s fleet of car2go ride-sharing cars.
Mission Valley is a modern epicenter of convenience that is rich with a natural history of the San Diego River basin. There really is a “mission” in Mission Valley—it’s the historic Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcala and it’s located near Qualcomm Stadium. There’s also Mission Trails Park offering 40 miles of hiking and biking trails just a few minutes past the stadium.

The San Diego River flows through the heart of Mission Valley, winding its way from the Cuyamaca Mountains to the Pacific Ocean. The land for a 17-acre community park adjacent to the river was recently donated by Civita’s founders, the Grant family.
The park, to be operated by the San Diego River Park Foundation, will feature the San Diego River Discovery Center—an interactive learning and educational facility slated for community gatherings and educational opportunities. The San Diego River Park offers public access to the wonders of the river, and within walking distance to a San Diego trolley station and several bus stops.
