South Bay Church Generates Savings with Vista Solar 202kW Solar Solution

Santa Clara, California, UNITED STATES

SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- South Bay Church, located in North San Jose, South San Jose and Sunnyvale, recently selected Vista Solar for a 202kW solar solution. South Bay Church is an upbeat, casual, and creative community, focused around Christianity. The solar installation at the North San Jose location is expected to be completed later this year in the fall and is estimated to save $74,000 annually. Vista Solar estimates that the solar solution, which is cash flow positive year 1, will be producing 307,815kWh year after year. According to the Environmental Protection Agency's calculation, that is the equivalent of 212 metric tons of carbon dioxide. To put that into perspective 212 metric tons is the equivalent to the carbon dioxide emitted from 23,884 gallons of gasoline!

Spencer Wells, the Project Developer that collaborated with Renan Santos who is one of the pastors at South Bay Church, shares his unique experience working with the following statement "Mr. Santos was a pleasure to work with. We went through a number of financing options, but found the right solution that will add to the Church's bottom line for years to come. The A6 rate schedule was the most important factor to lock in from the PG &E side. Without the A-6 rate schedule, they would be saving about $30,000 less per year."

The Vista Solar team, is thrilled to be selected as the solar solution provider for South Bay Church. Our experience has prepared us for the unique challenges non-profit solar solutions often encounter. With the current A-6 tariff set to expire by end of 2016, it is imperative that small to medium California organizations, like South Bay Church, act immediately to secure the most savings possible. Without the current A-6 tariff, California commercial owners can potentially miss out on 34% in savings!
