Bank of America’s Arizona campus now 60% powered by solar portfolio
Ameresco has announced the completion of a comprehensive solar PV installation for Bank of America’s corporate campus in Chandler, Arizona. The campus is now home to nearly 10,000 solar panels that will offset approximately 60% of the campus’s electricity demand annually.
The solar installations include arrays on building roofs and covered carports, providing shade for parking spaces for employees and visitors. It also includes EV charging stations, a solar-powered ATM, and campus-wide solar-powered banks that employees and visitors can use to charge personal devices such as smartphones and tablets.
“In 2019, Bank of America achieved carbon neutrality through efforts such as this project. While it’s a good start, we aim to be Net Zero by 2050,” said Mark O’Grady, Real Estate Portfolio Management Executive at Bank of America. “Not only is it one of the largest solar projects behind the meter west of Ohio, but it also gives our employees something they’ve been asking for: great covered parking.”
Construction on the project began in November 2020 and was completed in August 2021.
