Ameresco completes solar project for Bank of America

Ameresco Chandler

Ameresco, a leading clean technology integrator specialized in energy efficiency and renewable energy, announced this Wednesday it completed a solar energy installation within Bank of America’s corporate campus in Chandler, Arizona.

Firstly, the campus is now home to nearly 10,000 solar modules; which will offset around 60% of all the electricity demands of the campus every year. The solar installation includes arrays on building rooftops and covered carports, providing shade for employee and visitor parking spaces.

It also includes Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations; a solar-powered ATM; and solar-powered benches throughout the campus. Employees and visitors can use those to charge personal devices, such as smartphones and tablets.

Moreover, the project came right after Bank of America reached carbon neutrality back in 2019. However, it is also a further push towards the company’s goal to reach net-zero before 2050.

Furthermore, about the matter, Mark O’Grady, Real Estate Portfolio Management Executive at Bank of America, said. “Not only is it one of the largest ‘behind the meter’ solar projects west of Ohio, but it also gives our employees something they’ve been asking for, great covered parking spaces.”

On the other hand, Bob Georgeoff, Executive Vice President, Ameresco, said. “By investing in renewable energy technologies to offset on-site usage, Bank of America is making progress toward their goals for carbon reduction while providing meaningful change for clean energy advancement in the community.”

He also said. “We are so honored to have implemented this project for the employees and stakeholders of the Bank of America Chandler campus.”

Finally, the collaboration between the parties will result in a reduction of 5000 metric tons of CO2 equivalent greenhouse gas emissions annually. This represents the equivalent capability of 5,000 acres of US forests each year. Project construction began in November 2020 and ended August 2021.
