AmeriPride Services is recognized as one of North America’s largest uniform rental and linen supply companies. The company has more than 40 locations throughout the United States and Canada.
AmeriPride has a rich and long history of its commitment to sustainability. As part of that, it installed interior and exterior LED lights across all its locations, replaced boilers with more energy-efficient models, and updated its delivery fleet with electric vehicles. After choosing MA from its other locations for a pilot solar program, it sought out Solect to discuss its solar implementation plan.
The AmeriPride and Solect Energy partnership resulted in a 210 kW rooftop solar system for their facility in Worcester. The project was developed under a PPA, with Solect driving design and installation and taking care of the maintenance.
A 25% reduction in electricity costs
The solar energy project produces enough electricity to cover 25% of the facility’s annual electricity consumption.
