One year prior, the electric bill showed a usage of 9,520kWh with a bill of $1,428.43. By having solar installed, IISA saw a 103% reduction in their July electric bill. Gabe Nosseir, owner and general manager of IISA contacted Affordable Solar with the intention of gaining control of the electric costs associated with operating the indoor soccer arena. The arena’s pre-solar electric bill was averaging just over $1,300/month. After the installation of the 155 solar panels, the new average monthly electric bill will see a 92% reduction. The minimum energy output for year one is guaranteed to be 70,481 kWh. The estimated energy savings in year 1 will be $11,212. The estimated energy savings over 25 years will be $520,076. This is a significant savings for the successful operations of businesses of any size. The overall system cost was $143,000 and financing for the project wa...
