On average, our 1,450 solar panels generate more than 450,000 kWh of electricity annually, providing over half of our total electricity requirements. For the balance, we purchase electricity from a locally-controlled electricity provider that offers environmentally friendly power and we also purchase third-party certified renewable energy certificates (RECs) that directly support wind energy projects.
