Solar Service Helps Illinois Generate Green Electricity
Solar Service Inc. recently completed the largest privately owned commercial photovoltaic solar panel installation in the state of Illinois at United Displaycraft headquarters in Des Plaines. The system is anticipated to generate 170,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity per year.
“United Displaycraft has turned to the sun to generate green electricity and take advantage of government incentives that make great economic sense,” says Solar Service President and founder Brandon Leavitt. Leavitt added that United Displaycraft expects the solar system to pay for itself in four to five years.
“Environmentally, the system will provide annual carbon dioxide reduction of 122 tons, the equivalent of planting more than 61 acres of trees each year, and will also displace approximately 700 tons of nitric oxide and 1,800 tons of acid rain annually,” says Leavitt. “Economically, with state, federal and other available incentives, their investment is a smart business decision that allows them to invest in a needed commodity—electricity—at a fixed price below today’s cost, for decades to come.”
Since 1977, Solar Service has designed and installed thousands of solar heat, hot water and electric systems for homes, businesses, housing developments, municipalities and educational facilities across the nation.
