Solar on CROSSFIT Gym in Washington, DC
We installed solar panels on the roof of a CrossFit gym in Washington D.C., the CrossFit DC Northeast! Installed in September of 2017, this solar project has proven beneficial for the owner and stands to remain a powerful sustainable asset over its lifetime:
- It’s saving the owner hundreds of dollars annually in utility electricity bills – solar now supplies about half of the gym’s energy needs
- Over the 25-year warranty of the solar panels, the system is projected to reduce climate change pollution by the same amount as planting 7,000 trees in the U.S.
- Thanks to a federal tax credit for 30% of the cost of the full solar installation, the economics of the project were even more favorable. This tax credit is still available throughout 2019!
Take a look at the data output from the solar system – this is real production details showing that solar works at this location and is actively reducing energy costs and reliance on grid energy at this location, and helping a D.C. business move into a clean energy future.
