A critical part of Extra Space Storage’s mission is to reduce their carbon footprint by using solar to power their facilities. Extra Space Storage chose 1st Light Energy as the installer and integrator to assist in making their solar mission a reality. To date, more than 45 sites have been completed. An additional 58 facilities are in process ,and Extra Space Storage plans to continue adding solar to more of their facilities in 2013.
“1st Light Energy has used Solectria Renewables’ residential, commercial and utility-scale inverters in various installations over the past 5 years,” said Justin Krum, president of 1stLight Energy. “We chose Solectria because we find their warranties, customer service, performance and reliability to be what our customers are looking for.
Each of the 103 sites will use Solectria Renewables’ PVI 60, 82 or 95KW inverters. Over 11.5 million kWh will be produced per year providing significant savings to Extra Space Storage. This amount is equal to removing 1,578 passenger cars from roads or producing enough electricity to power 997 homes.
