Cumberland Animal Clinic
With 160 solar panels generating clean, renewable electricity year round, The Cumberland Animal Clinic has eliminated its carbon footprint and is saving hundreds of dollars in utility bills every month.
“Providing Compassionate Care For Your Best Friend” is the animal clinic’s motto, and now the same is true for how the clinic is treating Mother Earth by offsetting more than 30,000 lbs. of carbon pollution each year from regional fossil fuel power plants.
The relatively modest 49 kW ground-mounted solar array is able to provide all the electricity needed by the clinic, thanks to a suite of energy efficiency improvements integrated into the building’s design. The solar array has a 25-year warranty life and 30+ year expected useful lifespan, ensuring that the clinic will derive a strong economic and environmental return on its investment for decades to come.
