MOM’s Motorcycles of Manchester
MOMS of Manchester was so successful in the pre-owned market they decided to expand the business and open a second store in Massachusetts. They bought the building in 2002 and renovated the property. MOMS South opened in March of 2003 located just south of Gillette Stadium on Route 1 in Foxboro, Massachusetts under the helm of Joe Wheeler’s son Joel Wheeler. The market expanded to women riders and first time riders. MOMS Manchester’s and MOM’South was there again to meet their needs by taking on the Hyosung Motorcycle Franchise which provided the best all around entry level cruiser with comfort, size, and price.
Looking to find a way to offset operation costs, MOM’s saw the opportunity at its MA location to install a solar array to supplement the success of its expanded location.
By partnering with Solect Energy MOM’s was able to install a 283 kW solar array on the rooftop of its Foxboro location.
100% reduction of electricity costs
The array was sized to cover the entirety of their demand for electricity, and MOM’s was able to completely eliminate their energy bill. In addition to eliminating its electricity costs, Motorcycles of Manchester is also able to take advantage of state and federal tax and financial incentives, including SRECs (Solar Renewable Energy Certificates), which are financial incentives based on the amount of solar energy their system generates. Electrical utility providers in Massachusetts purchase SRECs to help them meet their state-mandated goals of a percentage of power coming from renewable energy sources.
