Planet Subaru's PV system generates approximately 88,000kWh annually, comparable to the energy required to power approximately eight average American homes. It provides almost half of the electricity used by the dealership annually.
Many customers tell us that they do business with us because they share our green values.
No maintenance required yet.
Efficiency or Sustainability Improvements:
Planet Subaru recycles has a five acre nature preserve on the property.
When it comes to protecting the environment, we take Theodore Roosevelt's advice to heart: "Do what you can, with what you have, where you are."
If you're installing a major PV system, it's a pretty major construction project so be prepared to spend a lot of time on it.
