Solar Panels installed November 2020
Roanoke Gas Co. interconnected a 75 kW (DC) solar facility at our corporate headquarters through a net metering arrangement with our local electric utility. The solar facility is expected to reduce our electricity consumption by approximately 18% on an annual basis. The Company negotiated a performance guarantee that the system will produce approximately 87,000 kWhs of electricity annually during the first five years of operation. This is the equivalent CO2 emissions from consuming 6,933 gallons of gasoline or the equivalent greenhouse gas emission from driving 152,000 miles.
