PLEASANTON, Calif., May 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cool Earth Solar, a SunPower Commercial Dealer, has completed the installation of a 142-kilowatt solar roof system at Bridges Community Church in Fremont, Calif.
The three-roof system, which was designed and installed by Cool Earth Solar, features high-efficiency SunPower solar panels, which deliver at least 30 percent more energy than conventional panels in the same amount of space.
Cool Earth Solar helped secure a five-year bank loan for the church, and designed a system that is expected to offset 95 percent of their electricity bill while generating more than 225,000 kilowatt-hours of clean energy each year.
"Utility electric energy costs are rising on average four percent a year, which over time could be prohibitive," said Bridges Community Church Elder William Steely. "Rob [Cool Earth Solar CEO] demonstrated how a SunPower solar system could not only effectively eliminate the electric energy portion of our utility bill, but also save us over $1.8 million over a 25 year period!"
As part of the loan agreement, and on top of SunPower's 25-year combined power and product warranty, Cool Earth Solar will monitor the system for five years to ensure that it is performing at or above expectations.
