Baker Electric Solar has designed and installed a 167.265kW rooftop solar system for Meziere Enterprises. Energy cost savings projected at 60 - 70% annually.
SAN DIEGO, Calif., August 30, 2016 -- Baker Electric Solar, a full-service solar provider, has designed and installed a 167.265kW rooftop solar system for Meziere Enterprises. The cooling system manufacturer will see a 60-70 percent reduction in its annual electricity spend based on past consumption. It's projected that Meziere will save an estimated $60,000 in energy costs in the first year. The system is comprised of 531 LG 315 60-cell solar modules with 10 SMA inverters. Meziere's 25,000 square foot facility is located at 220 S. Hale Avenue in Escondido, California.
When asked why Meziere chose to go solar, company partner Don Meziere shared, "We enjoy doing business in Southern California. However, there are some disadvantages to running a manufacturing company here. To be competitive, we need to do everything we can to reduce overhead for the long run. Manufacturing is heavily dependent upon electrical power and we know we can count on Escondido to be sunny most of the time. Turning that sunshine into energy efficiencies with a 5-year payback just made sense."
Meziere Enterprises has been based in Escondido since the early 1970s. "The Baker name is a fixture in San Diego, and their reputation is excellent. We know Baker will be here for the long run," added Meziere. "The on-site Baker team was always mindful of our need to continue our business tasks day-to-day and did their best not to impede our workflow. The workmanship and attention to detail was something we really appreciated."
According to the EPA Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator, Meziere's new solar system will save the equivalent of annual greenhouse gas emissions from 460,831 miles driven by an average passenger vehicle. It will offset CO2 emissions from 21,636 gallons of gasoline consumed or 205,182 pounds of coal burned per year.
Speaking to the financial impact of the project, Baker Electric Solar's Director of Commercial Solar Scott Williams said, "The Meziere solar system is expected to provide more than $1.97M in net savings over the 25-year warranted life of the solar modules. We never lose sight of the impact that predictable energy costs and increased profitability mean to our customers."
