Solect carefully examined BAC’s energy usage patterns and other factors in order to design the optimum solar energy system. Solect then worked to make sure that BAC would achieve maximum ROI through a myriad of solar incentives.
33% reduction of electricity costs
The power generated will cover 33 percent of the BAC’s energy needs, and is equivalent to the annual charging of 7,752 electric vehicles or 31,008,200 smart phones. It is projected that BAC will save approximately $233,000 over the course of 10 years. BAC will use some of the savings from the solar system to continue making efficiency improvements. Additionally, funds will be earmarked for the continual updating of club facilities and equipment.
