Project Description

Franklin Ford

Franklin Ford is the premier family-owned Ford dealership in the MetroWest area. The dealership has been in business for many decades and just performed the first renovation in the past 30 years.

Challenge

Franklin Ford, as a part of their renovations, wanted to make their dealership as energy efficient as possible, and reduce their environmental footprint.

Solution

Franklin Ford partnered with Solect Energy Development to install enough solar on the roof to supply nearly 100% of the energy for their dealership.

Result

With the improvements to their building, and the additional green measures they have taken to reduce their overall energy consumption, Franklin Ford will see their system cover nearly 100 percent of their electricity needs. In addition, the dealership is able to take advantage of state and federal tax incentives, including SRECs.
