Challenge

Parsons commercial was looking for a way to add additional revenue streams to their properties, while cutting costs for their clients at the same time. Their buildings were huge and operational and maintenance costs were significant year over year.

Solution

Parsons Commercial Group and two of its tenants at 35 Lyman Street in Northborough, MA — Active Logistics and ViewPoint Sign and Awning partnered to install a 475 kW solar PV system at their location in Northborough, MA.

Results

100% reduction of electricity costs

The system covers 100% of the electricity used on site and both Active and ViewPoint are saving money each month on their electric bill. Any “extra” electricity is transferred to other properties owned by PCG via Net Metering to offset the cost of the electricity in common areas.This installation is a great example of how building owners and its tenants can work together on a green energy solution.
