ESA has completed a 729.96-kW rooftop solar array for Dimmit Chevrolet in Clearwater, Florida. Dimmitt Chevrolet is expected to be powered 100% by solar energy, and by tapping into expanded federal tax incentives, will return all capital invested through energy savings in just under five years.
“This is a major step toward our goal of becoming a more sustainable and environmentally friendly business,” said Lawrence Dimmitt III, the owner of Dimmitt Chevrolet. “As we continue to add more EV options for customers, our electricity use will continue go up. It just makes sense to invest in clean energy. We are excited to partner with ESA to bring solar to our dealership.”
“We are thrilled to work with Dimmitt Chevrolet on this flagship project,” said Morgan Brawner, EVP of ESA. “The Dimmitt enterprise is an example of an entrepreneurial leader in the franchised auto dealership space that saw the opportunity to put capital to work, and hedge against increasing electric rates while reducing tax liability. Leveraging solar to offset 100% of annual energy needs will prove to be a competitive advantage as EV market share grows over the coming years.”
