California Solar Innovators provides commercial, residential and agricultural solutions for those looking to reduce their carbon footprint. From time to time we will provide a story about some of our projects.
Project: American Pallet Inc., Oakdale, CA
Installation: Custom Designed Roof-Mounted Solar System
Achievement: American Pallet Inc. never lost a day of production.
Imagine driving from earth to the Moon…30 times. All of those trips would create nearly 4,000 tons of CO2 – all dumped into our fragile atmosphere and weakening our already delicate ozone layer. Needless to say, this would have long lasting negative effects for generations to come.
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s website “renewable energy sources generated nearly 15% of the energy consumed” within America during 2016. One company, American Pallet Inc. of Oakdale, California, has done its part to help the environment and add to the 15% – not to mention reduce operating costs and strengthen their bottom line.
What American Pallet Did
American Pallet Inc. installed a custom designed roof-mounted solar system on a pre-existing structure, and never lost a day of production. During the system’s life, it will prevent nearly 4,000 tons of CO2 (the equivalent of driving 7,358,000 auto miles) from entering the atmosphere and will show a return on investment in just over 3 years.
If space limitations or concerns over lost production were deterring you from exploring solar as an energy generation source, it’s time to reconsider.
