Cascadia Green Building Countil is proud to host the first in a series of compelling panel discussions on Commercial Solar and Distrubuted Power Generation in Washington State. With the cost of PV modules and balance of system (BOS) components having fallen considerably, Distributed Power Generation presents a stronger value proposition for Industries across the Pacific Northwest than ever before. Properly designed and installed Commercial Solar delivers immediate control over operations spend in industrial facilities. In a tough economy where industry is faced with doing more with less, each dollar eliminated from operations overhead falls directly to the bottom line. Take important steps to control energy spend and learn how proper PV system design delivers immediate business results as commercial facilities implement best-practices and go Green For Good®.
