Solar Power is a Competitive Business Advantage
While product roadmaps, hiring plans and sales strategies are common at every business, it is far less typical for companies to have an energy strategy. At the same time, high energy users could be spending hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars a year. Imagine how that could be leveraged to power the business forward!
Ways to make energy a differentiator
Reduce Operating Overhead: Less money spent on monthly electricity bills means higher profit margins.
Reinvest Savings: Predictable monthly savings help fund growth activities or other investments.
Generate Business Value: Energy investments can increase the value of your property or facility, and create goodwill amongst employees and customers.
Create a Brand Platform: Use sustainability messaging to engage with your customers.

Waianae Solar Farm: Creative Community Solutions
The largest solar farm in Hawaii is generating the cheapest source of renewable power for the state’s utility. To help reduce impact on the natural landscape and community, we constructed the site as a “no import, no export” project, using an onsite rock quarry to crush any removed rocks and reuse it as gravel onsite. These types of ideas help generate community goodwill and reduce environmental impact.
