RI Animal Hospital Installs 11 kw Solar Array to Help Environment
Thursday, October 22, 2015
By installing this 11 kw DC solar array, the West Greenwich Animal Hospital will reduce pollution equivalent to 32,588 gallons of gasoline not consumed, 61 vehicles taken off the road or 311,076 pounds of coal that is not burned.
“Clean energy projects, big and small, have a positive impact on business owners, homeowners, and the local economy. This project will help a local business reduce operating costs and remain competitive in Rhode Island’s tough economic climate”, co-founder of NPTRE®, Stuart Flanagan, states about the benefits of this project.
Hospital owners and veterinarians Ralph and Amy Pratt hired the local renewable energy developer to design and install the solar array which will cancel out 36% of the hospital's annual electricity consumption.
The West Greenwich Animal Hospital has been providing animal care for over 20 years.
