“Solar power is a way we can cut costs and run our business even more efficiently, and Vista Solar gave us a deal that made too much sense to not go solar,” said Vince Tov, General Manager. “Thanks to our new system, we now have a hedge against utility rates and have more money that we can reinvest in our employees and our products.”
Vista Solar installed Suniva solar panels and an Equilibrium Echo Foot 2 racking system to turn a rooftop into an energy-producing asset. The project was completed on-time and on-budget in two short weeks of construction. In the first year of operation, the solar system is expected to produce 398,300 kWh.
Going solar also benefits the environment since much of the energy coming from utilities is derived from fossil fuels. The solar system’s energy will offset almost 600,000 pounds of carbon emissions in the first year alone, and the energy generated in that time period will be the equivalent to powering fifty-seven homes for the next twenty-five years.
