This project was a very rewarding experience for both Universal Solar System and Amerigold Apartments. The apartment complex had one common meter for all their tenants and hence had an all-utilities-paid rental model: tenants got unlimited utility usage with their rent and so were not motivated to save energy. USS helped install sub-metering service for the property, converting it from all utilities paid to metered usage for each tenant while also successfully installing a 200 KW system. Separate meters helped motivate the tenants to use their energy conservatively, resulting in a drop in the building’s total electricity consumption (grid and solar together) by 30-35%. Meanwhile, the charges passed on from the utility through the new meters were much smaller because the solar installation helped offset 60% of their electric bills. This added up to an overall 85-90% reduction in the tenants’ spending on electricity as well as a serious shrinkage in their carbon footprints. We’re proud of that.
