Sharper Impressions Painting Company has been painting homes and businesses for over 25 years. The company has long used environmentally-friendly paints daily, but while low-VOC paints have kept families, workers, and communities safe from harmful chemicals, the staff at Sharper Impressions felt they could do more to help protect the environment.
In the summer of 2016, the company’s office in Columbus, Ohio installed 28 solar panels. Since then, Sharper Impressions has greatly reduced its carbon footprint and electric bills.
Benefits of Solar Energy for Businesses
Reduced Carbon Emissions
Solar energy is carbon-free which means emissions aren’t released into the air when electricity is produced by solar panels.
Over the course of three years, solar panels have helped Sharper Impressions save 31,274 pounds in carbon emissions — an equivalent of planting nearly 788 trees!
Lower Electric Bills
Another huge advantage of solar power for businesses is that it can reduce or even eliminate astronomical electric bills.
Sharper Impressions founder, Geoff Sharp, says that the office now saves about $100 per month off its electric bill, and that it will only take around nine years for the solar panels to pay for themselves. “In just the first two days after installation, the office didn’t use any electricity for power, and put more energy back onto the grid than what it was consuming.”
“We love when the sun shines bright,” says Geoff. “It means the office is running 100 percent on solar power and we can be painting outside!”
