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.
