Honda has just completed installing one of if not the largest commercial solar-cell demonstration project in the US at its Honda Performance Development (HPD) center in Santa Clarita, CA. HPD is American Honda's North American racing development and sales organization, operating out of a two-story 123,000-square-foot building. Recently, HPD has undertaken a number of "green racing" motorsports initiatives, including developing and campaigning hybrid and alternative-fuel Honda race vehicles.
