Pink Energy and Multi-Family Housing

As a landlord or property manager, it can become expensive to keep up with utility and maintenance costs. What if we told you that you can potentially offset these costs AND keep your residents happy? We’re here to share the details about what it means to add solar at your commercial business!

Have your housing units ever lost power during a thunderstorm or when the grid just happened to go down? That likely left your occupants upset as this inconvenience may have spoiled the food in their refrigerators or put a pause on their evening tv time. With Pink Energy, we can limit this risk by adding solar panels and battery backups at your housing site and potentially keep your residents out of the dark.

How Does It Work?

We have a team of experts that will professionally install the solar panels on the rooftops of your desired buildings. Fortunately for you, your apartment building, multi-family dwelling, or dormitory likely has more than enough rooftop space to place a large solar array. If that’s not your cup of tea, you can also look into getting a ground-mounted system on your property. Once installed, your solar panels will begin collecting energy from the sun during the day and will help to power each of your units. You can even take it a step further by adding Generac backup batteries to store any excess electricity your panels collect during the day. This extra electricity can be used at night when your panels are not operating, during peak “time of use rate” hours, or when the grid goes down.

Experience Counts

Don’t take our word for it though! Our familiarity with installing on commercial businesses, just like yours, is just one of the many eggs in our solar basket. We installed large arrays at Bardaville Apartments in Lansing, Michigan a while back. The residential site offers 131 one-bedroom units and with their roof and ground-mounted solar panel array, their system produces approximately 125,000 kWh of solar energy annually.

Potential Tenants Seeing Green

Like the Bardaville Apartments, you can pass the potential cost savings of going solar on to your tenants’ rent price. These savings can add up over time and possibly help you budget for renovations. Also, not only will you be getting the best bang for your buck, but you will also reduce your carbon footprint by using solar energy. Your potential occupants may see this new investment as a positive sign that you’re being eco-conscious. as many young adults are striving for a cleaner environment.

The extended features Pink Energy has to offer

There is no better time than now to take the solar journey with Pink Energy. Our experts will do an on-site inspection of your housing units to determine the best possible design on your building, or buildings, before installation. With a higher density of people occupying the units, along with larger rooftops, it only makes sense to go solar and potentially offset overhead costs while helping the environment.
