Seeking to build on its efforts, the company’s leadership team decided to go solar. Aurora Energy assisted with their efforts by designing and installing a rooftop PV system, featuring 925 SunPower high-efficiency solar panels; the system offsets all electricity-related carbon emissions and has virtually eliminated the company’s electricity bill. Savings from the PV system are projected to be $1.6 million over the course of the next 25 years. But the impact on community well-being is worth much more.
