Commercial Solar Installation for Benson's Heating & Air

Solar Power & Benson’s Corporate Sustainability Initiative

Published on April 9th, 2015

In 2014, we had the privilege to work with Benson’s Heating and Air in Tallahassee, FL to have their facility become energy neutral. In their Spring/Summer 2015 newsletter, they shared a bit of insight into their experience so far. See the solar installation services we provided on our commercial portfolio.

Here is what they had to say:

Renewables and energy efficiency are important to BENSON’S. We are constantly looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint all the while doing our best to be good stewards of our environment. That’s why in September 2014 we installed roof-top mounted solar panels that convert sunlight into direct current electricity.

This new 72kW solar array has neutralized our electricity costs and even generates enough electricity to cover our monthly water bill in months that have better than average sunny days.

“A local company, Independent Green Technologies, did a fantastic job installing 292 solar panels each producing a maximum of 250 watts each and are guaranteed to produce clean energy for 25 years.”

Commercial Solar Installation Review

The panels harness the powerful, completely free, Florida sunshine and convert it into the electricity we use throughout the day. Our utility meter measures energy use and actually turns backward putting power back into the grid when our solar-powered system generates more power than is needed.

This excess solar energy then offsets energy needed at night or on rainy days. A monitoring system continuously tracks energy production and allows us to view data that shows how much we are saving in energy costs.

With very little maintenance needed, other than annual cleaning, a solar power system was a great corporate investment to make BENSON’S a “clean” energy company.

The reduction in our utilities expense also helps ensure we continue to offer the best prices to our customers.
