Solar Installer Partnership Paired with Buyback Program & Solar Rebate
HOUSTON– February 22, 2017 /3BL Media/ – Texans now have more reasons to adopt rooftop solar with Green Mountain Energy’s new solar program, featuring a simple three-step process that helps make going solar easy for Texas homeowners. Through the initiative, Green Mountain pairs a homeowner with an approved local rooftop solar installer, then enrolls the homeowner in the Green Mountain Renewable Rewards® buy-back program and provides the homeowner with a SolarSPARC® rebate.
With 16 solar installations in the United States, General Motors takes the top spot among automakers for solar energy use in the nation. Its latest array can be found at the company’s Rochester Operations plant in New York – a 466-kilowatt array expected to power 3 percent of the facility’s electricity. That’s enough energy to power nearly 57 single family homes in New York or charge 1,000 electric vehicles for a year.
Our march toward a clean energy future continues. We’re partnering with DTE Energy to build a new 800-kilowatt, 2,800-panel, 4.25-acre solar array at our Warren Transmission plant in Michigan.
The array will generate around 1 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually, the energy equivalent to powering about 135 homes in southeast Michigan for a year. And since the electricity will go back to the grid, Warren Transmission’s array really will power some of those homes.
New 800-kilowatt array at Warren Transmission will be GM’s largest in Michigan
WARREN, Mich., October 19, 2015 /3BL Media/ – General Motors is partnering with DTE Energy to build a new 800-kilowatt solar array at its Warren Transmission plant that will be GM’s largest solar installation in Michigan.
