Circular Energy Commissions 29.76 kW Solar Power Projects For iShine Express Car Wash

Circular Energy is proud to announce the commissioning of two 14.88 kW solar installations for iShine Express, a chain of eco-minded car washes and detailers. By powering their operations with solar, Circular Energy is helping iShine advance their sustainability goals and reduce power costs.

The roof-mounted solar power installations will offset twenty percent of electricity costs for the car wash, saving over $3,600 dollars each year. The solar power installations reflect the company's ongoing commitment to affordable express detail services.


iShine car washes use mini water treatment plants on-site which allows them to reclaim most of the water used during the washing process. Their facilities also use biodegradable shampoos to provide a gentler clean to both cars and the surrounding environment.

"We've always been interested in further greening our operations by powering our facilities with solar," said Jaron Stone, Owner and Head of Operations for iShine Express. "Circular Energy presented us with a scenario that made solid business sense, including a number of financing options tailored to our specific needs. Circular Energy came highly recommended by their existing customers, and delivered a high level of professionalism and expertise throughout this process."

Nearly $100,000 dollars of energy savings is expected to be delivered during the 25-year system lifetime and solar panel warranty period.

"We are very excited to announce the completion of the combined 29.76 kW solar power installations for iShine, and even more happy about helping them power their eco-friendly operations with a lifetime of clean energy," added Richard Estrada, Vice President of Circular Energy's Commercial Solar Division.

The projects will provide approximately 38,038 kWh of clean, renewable solar power each year, equivalent to offsetting more than 26 metric tons of CO2.

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
