Long Subaru is a family-owned dealership based in Webster, MA. The company has been in business for nearly 90 years.
Long Subaru was faced with continued rising electricity costs, and had been looking at solutions for several years. Solar was always in the mix, but Long Subaru wanted to wait until the time—and incentives—were right.
Long Subaru partnered with Solect Energy to install a 246 kW system atop its showroom and body shop.
The system is expected to cover up to 100 percent of the dealership’s electricity costs annually, generating up to $100,000 in electricity savings each year. In addition, Long Subaru will generate significant additional revenue annually through the SREC program.
Location: Webster, MA
