ConcordRENTS is known for Affordability, Convenience and Comfort. And today, we believe it’s more important than ever to add something new —GREEN! While energy consumption continues to increase, ConcordRENTS is committed to doing our part by investing in energy efficient appliances and producing a clean energy alternative by installing photovoltaic solar panels at our communities.
We are now providing power to our corporate office and 23 of our properties with clean solar energy. This renewable source helps power common areas and serves a secondary benefit of reducing operating costs.
While solar is very much a forward-looking investment in the future of Florida’s energy, it is also part of our commitment to keeping the Sunshine State beautiful. In fact, our current solar production is estimated to reduce enough CO2 emissions to preserve approximately 68,000 acres of forestland within the 30-year projected lifetime. That’s a lot of land!
We are always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint while solving for today’s high-demand energy needs. Solar has proven a clean and effective way to produce energy our buildings can use while reducing our impact on the environment and providing a better future.
To put our solar energy generation into perspective, the standard lightbulb used for an average of 3 hours a day, requires approximately 411 kWh every month. Collectively, our solar plants currently generate 2,472,641 kWh in the course of a year! By allowing solar power to keep more than just the lights on, it helps offset operating costs for our buildings as we maintain overall quality for our residents.
As a leader in affordable rental housing communities, ConcordRENTS strives to deliver the best service for our customers—inclusive of navigating superior means to power our properties.
