“Working with OMCO Solar has become second nature. They know exactly what we want and we haven’t had to continually repeat ourselves. Sometimes you work with a vendor over and over again, and it seems like you’re having to teach the wheel every time. With OMCO Solar, we are in synch, and we continue moving forward, bringing clean energy to the communities that need it the most.”
How We Work Together
In the end, the teams were successful in completing their largest project together to date. “It’s a jewel on the crown of OMCO Solar and Coldwell Solar,” he said.
From there, the partners worked together on dozens of other projects, leveraging Choice as well as OMCO Origin™ Factory-Direct Trackers. On a typical 1-MW project, OMCO Solar and Coldwell Solar enabled end-customers to offset nearly 1,200 metric tons of carbon dioxide (equivalent to the greenhouse gas emissions from 262 passenger vehicles over a year).
How Customers Benefit
Chambers says it really comes down to economics for their commercial clients considering going solar. “By installing solar, they can save each month and divert resources to more pressing needs. Many of our clients have diversified businesses, some of which have been hit hard in this economy and can save money by getting solar. We work very hard to size the system just right so that they don’t have to worry about utility bills during hard times.”
