Secure Self Storage in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware announced going green by using solar power to run its facility. Delaware self storage facility is one of the very few “Green” self storage facilities in the USA.
“After consulting with various environmental groups and solar panel companies and manufacturers, we decided to install a bank of solar panels to supply electricity to our self storage facility. Depending on the season, the solar panels are able to generate 30 – 50% of the electricity needs of the facility. Adding further improvements and refinements, a whopping 90% of the total electric needs are provided by the array of solar panels,” said Steve Schwartz, managing partner at Secure Self Storage. “Secure Self Storage in Rehoboth Beach actually produces more solar energy per year than it uses, allowing us to sell the extra electricity back to the grid. We still buy some energy from the grid because unfortunately, and as we all know; the sun doesn’t shine every day,” Steve added. Over many years, Secure Self Storage has strived to implement various energy reduction techniques, alternative energy sources, and recycling programs to reduce their carbon footprint and provide quality service; to be an environmentally friendly facility.
Bill Green, District Manager with Secure Self Storage says, “It is our belief that alternative energy sources are good for the environment, ultimately cost efficient, and something that consumers are interested in supporting. Our solar panels power our office, our lighted non-climate storage units, our climate controlled storage units, and our lighted marquee. This is just one of many ways we try to be responsible towards our environment. We are also proud to take part in the recycling programs as well. We recycle all waste paper, cardboard, glass and plastics, aluminum and steel cans collected at our storage facilities.”
Secure Self Storage is also interested in conserving the energy produced thru solar panels. This includes having light fixtures in the interior of the buildings on timers to ensure that lights are not left on when there is no one using them. Secure Self Storage is also helping solar companies to use Secure Self Storage facilities for their growing business needs. At present, several solar companies store their products with Secure Self Storage and there are many other innovative companies that are taking advantage of Secure Self Storage’s storage solutions.
