Vista Solar has completed a 44.2-kW solar system for packaging distributor Container Consulting Service (CCS).
“CCS was a perfect candidate for solar,” says Vista Solar Sales Manager Jennifer Le. “With high energy consumption, a large unobstructed roof space, and customers who care about their carbon footprint, the decision to go solar made sense from every perspective.”
The 44.2-kW system at CCS in Santa Clara, Calif., will offset 98 percent of the company’s electricity bill and generate positive cash flow savings from day one. The cumulative 25-year savings will total well over $500,000. Annually, the system will generate over 67,000 kilowatt hours of clean energy, offsetting over 50 tons of carbon dioxide emissions, and producing enough energy to power 6.4 homes.
“With 65% growth in the last five years, we needed to look at smart ways to manage our growing energy consumption,” says CCS General Manager Will Trefts. “Vista Solar has helped us do that.”
Construction on the system was completed in just 8 days. The equipment used includes high-efficiency Suniva modules and SMA TriPower inverters.
