Our 1,450 solar panels generate on average about 437,730 kWh of electricity annually, providing over half of our total requirements. For the balance, we purchase electricity from a locally-controlled electricity provider that offers environmentally-friendly power and we also purchase Green-e® Energy Certified Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) that directly support wind energy projects.
