Solect analyzed BAC’s energy usage and the associated factors to design a customized solar energy system and helped them maximize their ROI by leveraging the appropriate solar incentives.
A 33% reduction in electricity costs
The power generated by their solar system will cover 33 percent of BAC’s energy needs, equivalent to the annual charging of 7,752 electric vehicles or 31,008,200 smartphones. BAC is projected to save approximately $233,000 over 10 years, enabling them to drive further infrastructural improvement projects and equipment upgrades.
