New Smart-Tech, Solar-Powered Storage Facility Breaks Ground in Napa


Storage Star, a leading owner and operator of self storage assets in the Western U.S., Rocky Mountain Region, and Texas, announced today that it will be breaking ground on a brand new, state-of-the-art, smart technology self storage facility, powered by 100 percent renewable energy, launching the region’s first new storage facility in 20 years.

The new Storage Star facility – owned by Sacramento and Napa-based FollettUSA / Storage Star, constructed by Roseville-based Thomastown Builders, and located next to the Napa Regional Airport – is set to be the North Bay’s most high-tech and secure self storage facility with the latest smart technology advancements, making it the premier storage offering in the North Bay.

Features include unit monitoring and unlocking from your smartphone, 24/7 access, climate-control and top-grade surveillance. Storage Star’s new facility looks to improve the storage offering in a growing region.

“Napa Valley is a vibrant, growing community that deserves modern, high quality self storage at a reasonable price. Our new facility will provide the most technologically advanced security features available in the market today. When combined with our solar installation, we believe our new facility provides an excellent example of quality and stewardship that new real estate developments should bring to the Valley.”

-Matt Garibaldi, president, FollettUSA and Storage Star

In addition to making a commitment to security and convenience, Storage Star has partnered with Marin Clean Energy to provide 100 percent clean solar power from a rooftop, nearly 1-megawatt, solar installation.

With the continued construction of apartments and homes in the Napa and American Canyon area, Storage Star is meeting the increased demand for self storage in a growing market. The facility is scheduled to break ground on May 10, 2019 and open July 1, 2020 with 618 state-of-the-art units providing ideal secure space.

Storage Star currently operates 20 properties with more than 12,000 units and 1.6 million rentable square feet.
