REC Solar and the Fresh & Easy Neighborhood market in Phoenix, Arizona invited local politicians to join in celebrating the completion of 536kW of solar systems installed on Fresh & Easy stores throughout Arizona and California. The Phoenix Fresh & Easy location features a 39kW system, which is part of the 746,000kWh of electricity that the market chain is expected to gain from the installation of roof-mounted systems on 10 of its stores.
“Partnerships with innovative and forward-thinking companies like Fresh & Easy are critical to expanding the solar market in the United States and bringing solar into the mainstream,” said REC Solar CEO Angiolo Laviziano. “The projects as a whole demonstrate that a large number of smaller individual store rooftops can add up to significant operating savings.”
REC Solar installed its REC Peak Energy Series panels on the rooftop of Fresh & Easy stores, including the Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa and Avondale, Arizona locations. Each of the 10 stores with a new solar installation features an in-store display that gives real-time solar energy information while additionally educating customers how the solar system works.
