Whaling City Motors

Automotive Retail: Solar with Roof Replacement

Whaling City was looking to upgrade their approach to energy, replace and aging roof and install solar to cut energy costs.  With no money-down financing through Nuveen Green Capital, going solar made economic sense, the business will enjoy decades of solar production and energy savings from the installation of a 329 kW roof-top system.
