SolarCraft, a leading provider of solar energy solutions in Marin, Sonoma, and Napa counties, has recently completed two solar power installations for Cal-West Rentals. This premier North Bay rental company has implemented solar power systems at their locations in Petaluma, Sonoma County, and San Rafael, Marin County. By harnessing clean and sustainable solar energy for their operations, Cal-West Rentals aims to not only save on electricity costs but also reduce their carbon footprint and protect against utility rate increases.

Saving Costs and the Environment

The solar photovoltaic systems installed at Cal-West’s sites in San Rafael and Petaluma are projected to generate nearly 60,000 kWh per year. This will offset around 90% of the company’s electricity usage from traditional utilities, replacing it with clean solar power. Additionally, these new solar panels are expected to offset 42 metric tons of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) annually, equivalent to removing over 107,000 miles driven by an average gasoline-powered vehicle, saving 97 barrels of oil, or the carbon sequestered by 49 acres of trees in a year.

Commitment to Sustainability

The owners of Cal-West Rentals have demonstrated their commitment to sustainability by investing in solar energy solutions. Starting with their sister company, Encore Events Rentals, they now have solar installations at three locations, all completed by SolarCraft. By prioritizing renewable energy sources, Cal-West Rentals not only reduces their environmental impact but also sets a high standard for responsible business practices in the industry.
