ESA Renewables to Host Rooftop Solar Site Tour in Fletcher, NC on December 5
ESA Renewables, LLC will host a dedication and site tour of a 500Kw rooftop solar system at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, December 5. The address of the site is Fletcher Warehousing 4600 Hendersonville Road, Fletcher, North Carolina.
The project sits atop the Fletcher Warehousing building in Fletcher, North Carolina. The Henderson County solar system was fully constructed from start to finish in three short weeks. The rooftop solar facility is projected to produce 650,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) of energy annually, equivalent to powering over 45 average sized homes per year. The Fletcher Warehousing project will bring numerous benefits to the building owner and local community. Roof space that was previously unused has been optimized to produce residual income and fixed energy costs.

U.S. SENATE ACTION ALERT!!
The National Defense Authorization Act is scheduled to be heard today on the Senate floor. This could be the end game for several Department of Defense clean energy initiatives if it passes without an amendment that strikes language from Sen. McCain and Sen. Inhofe who are both trying to eliminate provisions that allow the DoD to pursue clean energy alternatives. Let’s prevent that from happening.
Please call or email Sen. Hagan’s office ASAP and encourage her to protect the military’s clean energy initiatives. She has been supportive to date. We just want her to stand strong on this. Please see instructions and talking points below.
