Standard Solar helps managed care company Kaiser Permanent reduce its energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions
A project that combines a solar carport, rooftop and ground mount arrays and five Level 2 electric vehicle chargers at Kaiser Permanente’s Gaithersburg and Shady Grove, MD locations are helping the managed care company take another step toward its sustainability goals.
The system allows the company to operate in a fiscally and environmentally sustainable manner and is estimated to be providing an annual offset of greenhouse gases emissions equivalent to 96 cars and recycling 150 tons of waste rather than sending to landfills.
Additionally, the system is conveniently located within walking distance of the office while the carport array includes a water management system. The system is also highly visible to traffic on the nearby freeway, serving as a reminder that Montgomery County, and all of Maryland, is committed to the nation’s clean energy transition.
