Subaru of Claremont is Now Completely Powered by the Sun
Here at Subaru of Claremont, we're proud to announce that we are New Hampshire's first automotive dealership to be powered entirely by solar power! On December 20, 2015, our array of 440 photovoltaic solar panels went live, providing our dealership with enough energy to completely offset our electricity usage. The 96 kW AC / 114 kW DC system reduces our greenhouse gas emissions by more than 250,000 pounds of carbon dioxide each year.
"The installation of 100% renewable, sustainable solar power at the dealership is just one small step that we can take as a Subaru retailer to do our part for the environment and help Subaru further its mission of stewardship of the environment," said owner Peter Mans.
With this sustainability initiative, Subaru of Claremont joins Subaru in its longstanding dedication to the environment. Examples of this commitment include a Zero-Landfill manufacturing plant in Lafayette, IN, and the first automotive assembly plant to be designated a national wildlife habitat.
