Borrego Solar ended 2008 with $60 million in revenue and more than $90 million in contracts. The company has installed solar systems on schools, affordable housing communities, grocery and retail businesses as well as town and municipal facilities in California and New England.

In related news, John Robert Wallace and Stan Chang are joining Borrego Solar’s board of directors. Wallace has extensive experience in executive positions in solar, electric drive train and battery technologies at companies including Xantrex and Ford Motor Company.
