Sunetric installs 113 kW System at Wholesale Unlimited, Inc.
<br/><br/> Waipahu, HI – sunetric.com – Wholesale Unlimited Inc., famous for its crack seed and Li Hing treats, has a new trick up its sleeve. Just in time for Halloween, the local snack food company is switching to solar energy with the help of Sunetric, the state’s largest locally owned and operated solar company. Sunetric recently completed the net-metered project, saving Wholesale Unlimited nearly $40,000 per year in energy costs. <br/><br/> “Wholesale Unlimited is thrilled to be switching to clean energy,” said Marc Honma, Vice President of Wholesale Unlimited, Inc. “As a member of Hawaii’s community since 1965, we’ve grown up with Hawaii’s families. Making the investment in solar energy will help eliminate our electric bills and allow us to keep delivering the high-quality, reasonably priced snacks that people love,” he said. “It is very important for us to do what’s best for Hawaii – to protect the environment and keep it beautiful.”<br/><br/> Wholesale Unlimited is investing over a half million dollars into the state-of-the-art system which features 495 Trina 230 W modules. The panels will generate an average of 521 kWh of electricity per day – and when combined with tax incentives, Wholesale Unlimited will recoup its investment sometime during the fourth year of operation,” said Marc Unowitz, Sunetric energy consultant. <br/><br/> Sunetric’s CEO Alex Tiller adds, “Wholesale Unlimited is a longtime anchor of this community. This important investment for Hawaii’s aina sends a strong message about their overall values and commitment to the environment.” <br/><br/> Over the next 30 years, Wholesale Unlimited’s new solar array is estimated to prevent approximately 4,543 tons of carbon dioxide emissions from entering Hawaii’s air. The solar panels will offset 99.6% percent of their electrical usage, replacing 9,653 barrels of oil that would have otherwise been burned for energy.
