Austin, Texas (PRWEB) September 15, 2015
When the new Austin Habitat for Humanity ReStore and Headquarters opens on South First and Ben White in Austin, it will be outfitted with solar energy.
Meridian Solar, an Austin-based solar developer, will engineer and install a 254 kW system on the rooftop and awnings of the newly renovated building. The system will be financed through an operating lease, requiring no money out-of-pocket for Austin Habitat. Additionally, the system is expected to reduce average energy costs per kilowatt-hour by 65% over 25 years.
