Ameresco, a renewable energy asset developer, completed the installation of nearly 10,000 solar modules at Bank of America’s campus in Chandler, Arizona. The solar installations included arrays on rooftops and covered carports, electric vehicle charging stations, solar-powered benches to recharge personal devices and a solar-powered ATM.

The installation will offset about 60% of the electricity requirements of the campus each year. It will reduce nearly 5,000 metric tons of CO2 equivalent greenhouse gas emissions annually.

“In 2019, Bank of America reached carbon neutrality through efforts like this project. While it is a good start, we aim to be net zero before 2050,” said Mark O’Grady, real estate portfolio management executive at Bank of America. “Not only is it one of the largest ‘behind the meter’ solar projects west of Ohio, but it also gives our employees something they’ve been asking for, great covered parking spaces.”

This installation will result in a reduction of almost 5,000 metric tons of CO2 equivalent greenhouse gas emissions annually.

Work on the project commenced in November 2020 and completed in August 2021.
