How Can Commercial Solar Help Your Family Trucking Business?

Environmental conservation and sustainability are two of the most important aspects of modern business. With global warming becoming an ever-increasing problem, more and more companies are recognizing the need to reduce their carbon footprint. In addition, going green can also help your family trucking business in other ways such as reducing costs, improving efficiency, and helping you gain a competitive edge.

California's Groundbreaking Solar + Storage Requirement 

California has made its mark once again, becoming the first state to pass a groundbreaking law that requires all newly constructed commercial buildings to have both solar photovoltaic (PV) arrays and energy storage systems (ESS). Last year, this historic Energy Code passed with an unprecedented unanimous vote.

The Solar Mandate

Beginning January 1, 2023, all newly constructed buildings shall have a solar PV system installed.

The following types of buildings are subject to the rule:

  • Grocery
  • High-rise
  • Multifamily
  • Office
  • Financial institutions
  • Unleased tenant space
  • Retail
  • School
  • Warehouse
  • Auditorium
  • Convention center
  • Hotel/motel
  • Library
  • Medical office
  • Building/clinic
  • Theater

Storage Mandate

Beginning January 1, 2023, all buildings required to have a PV system shall also have a battery storage system.

How The Mandate Impacts Family Owned Trucking Businesses

Family owned trucking businesses have high gross energy consumption. All those fans, chillers, pumps, cold storage and air conditioning don't power themselves. Or do they?

With a commercial solar and storage system, your family trucking business can enjoy all the benefits provided by renewable energy.

  1. Cost savings: Solar PV systems generate electricity for free, eliminating large electric bills that can add up quickly over time.
  2. Efficiency gains: The use of solar energy also helps to improve efficiency as it is more reliable than grid energy.
  3. Tax credits and incentives: The federal government offers tax credits and other financial incentives to businesses that install solar PV systems.
  4. Environmental advantages: Going green helps your business do its part for the environment, reducing emissions and helping preserve natural resources.
