HOUMA, La., Nov. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Solar Alternatives, a provider of commercial solar solutions, announces the completion of a 300kW Solar PV System for Swire Energy Services. This system is expected to generate over 340MWh of energy annually, resulting in an estimated $1.25 million in energy savings.
President of Solar Alternatives, Jeffrey Cantin stated, “This solar project at Swire Energy Services demonstrates how energy firms can integrate environmental responsibility into their activities, providing reliable power and profitable results. Swire’s achievement is industry-leading and brings long-term financial and sustainability benefits.”
Director of Swire Energy Services, Mike Perera, added, “At Swire Energy Services, we are committed to providing long-term sustainable value to our stakeholders, customers, and community. We aim to lead our industry in sustainable development and, by partnering with Solar Alternatives on this project, this is just one of many steps toward reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2030.”
Solar projects offer cost-effective energy solutions for businesses. The recent increase in federal tax credits for commercial solar projects to 30% has become an attractive investment for companies aiming to reduce energy costs and contribute to sustainability goals. Cantin added, “Now is the perfect time for businesses to invest in renewable energy. We look forward to assisting more regional companies in reducing energy costs and lowering their carbon footprint.”
