California mall adds 9,000 solar panels
The property, which comprises an enclosed mall with an open-air lifestyle component, recently added a 9,000-solar-panel array above multiple parking decks, bringing the property's total number of solar panels to 15,000. Installed in partnership with the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power in three phases since 2012, Westfield Topanga & The Village's solar power system now boasts a total capacity of over 4 megawatts, the largest at any shopping center or retail destination in California.

A lot of feel good statistics, but no real cost savings analysis for the mall over the life of the solar PV system. The electric utilities are not decreasing electric rates. As an average across the U.S.A. electricity rates increase by 1% a year. NOW someone says, "I haven't an electricity rate increase in 10 years." Then this guys utility decommissions and old generation plant, constructs new generation plant(s) and raises his electricity rates 3% to 5% per year, for several years. OOOps, just caught up to the (average) of 1% increase per year.
