North Bay Storage Facility Goes Solar and Saves On Energy Bills
Novato and Sonoma based SolarCraft, a leading North Bay solar installer for over 35 years, recently completed the installation of an 85 kW DC solar system at Petaluma Public Storage in Petaluma, CA. This new photovoltaic solar system will save them over $25,500 annually on utility bills, powering their facility with clean, renewable solar electricity for decades to come.
The solar power system is roof mounted for maximum sun exposure and consists of 240 high-efficiency solar panels, producing 116,042 kWh annually. Excess power generated during the day is banked by PG&E for credit towards future use at night when the sun isn’t shining.
The benefits of switching to solar energy are not only substantial for their business and their bottom line, but also for our environment. This is the environmentally responsible action to take, lowering their carbon footprint, and also resulting in substantial cost savings that will lower operating costs for over 25 years.
Every year over 82 metric tons of carbon dioxide generated by Petaluma Public Storage will be eliminated. This impact is equivalent to removing air pollution produced by almost 5 million miles of driving over 25 years or the pollutants removed by 97 acres of trees in one year.
