In this case study, we look at a forward-thinking dealership, Guest Truck & Van, which has strategically integrated solar photovoltaic (PV) systems across multiple sites, reaping substantial commercial benefits in the process. With a commitment to sustainability and cost efficiency, this company embarked on a green energy journey by installing solar PV arrays on various properties which runs its everyday operations. It was important to the client to have a full understanding of its energy production along with its energy consumption across each of the sites, which has been delivered with the incorporation of the dedicated software platform. By harnessing the power of the sun, the company has significantly reduced its electricity bills, simultaneously decreasing its carbon footprint and environmental impact.
