ABC Home & Commercial Services in San Antonio is now powered by the sun, thanks to a project recently completed by Freedom Solar Power.
Powered by 152 SunPower 327 watt high efficiency modules, this solar project will offset more than 75 percent of ABC's electricity costs, and it will pay for itself in less than four years. The solar project will save ABC Home & Commercial a total of $250,000 over the next 25 years, the guaranteed lifetime of the system.
"We're excited to partner with one of Texas' largest privately held companies on this meaningful new project," says Kyle Frazier, Freedom Solar Power's director of sales.
The environmental impact of the new solar project is equivalent to planting 47.5 trees or removing 5.8 cars from the road. "But this is just the icing on the cake," Frazier says. "The real green for most building owners is the high yield on the investment, in this case a more than 20 percent internal rate of return. There isn't a better place to invest, with less volatility, than solar power right now."
Founded in 2007, Freedom Solar Power is the leader in turnkey solar installations in Texas, providing high quality, cost-effective, reliable solar solutions for residential and commercial markets. ABC Home & Commercial is an award-winning provider of home and commercial pest control, air conditioning, heating, lawn care, and more, with locations in seven Texas cities. ABC's San Antonio office is located at 10644 IH 35 North.
"More and more business owners like ABC are looking at their energy needs with a long-term perspective," Frazier says. "Solar reduces long-term operating costs and paves the way for businesses to be more profitable and environmentally friendly. ABC has joined a growing list of visionary companies that have the foresight to plan ahead for the future of their businesses, customers and employees, and our environment," Frazier says.
Bobby Jenkins, owner of ABC Home & Commercial Services, says: "We are a family-owned and operated company founded in San Antonio that has decades of history serving the great state of Texas. The installation of this new solar project is another way we can continue to build upon our ongoing commitment to sustainability and serve our customers for many generations to come."
In addition to Freedom Solar Power and ABC Home & Commercial's commitment to the environment, there are many similarities between the two companies.
From its early days as a pest control company (then named ABC Pest and Lawn), ABC Home & Commercial Services has expanded to offer everything from lawn maintenance and air conditioning repair to handyman services and plumbing.
Freedom Solar Power started as an installation company in 2007, and after establishing themselves as a leading photovoltaic panel installer, the company expanded its business model to offer services directly to residential and commercial markets.
