U.S. self-storage company Extra Space Storage is midway through a program to install 10 MW of photovoltaic panels on 103 of its more than 850 facilities across the country.
When complete, the company’s installations will provide 11.5 million kWh/year – the equivalent energy required to power almost a thousand homes and, in carbon footprint terms, the equivalent of taking almost 1,600 cars off the road.
Some 45 units have had solar panels fitted already with another 58 in the pipeline for 2013.
New Jersey-based 1st Light Energy won the contract to install and integrate the systems, which will be fitted with 60kW, 82kW or 95 kW inverters supplied by U.S. manufacturer Solectria Renewables.
