Big box retailers are leading in commercial solar installations in the United States, but solar’s energy-saving benefits aren’t limited to Fortune 500 companies. Hospitals, small businesses, shopping malls, multi-family and other commercial and industrial properties have a new tool to help them go solar: the PACE Lease®.
De-Meter Power first developed the new financial tool through the SunShot Initiative Technology to Market program, which helps entrepreneurs bring innovative, early-stage technologies to the market.
In July 2016, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Legacy Management (LM) achieved two key cleanup milestones at the Pinellas County, Florida, Site in Largo by completing work at two of the site’s four active remediation areas where DOE has been performing corrective actions under a Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments permit since 1990.
The Pinellas site is a former nuclear weapons component production facility 10 miles northwest of St. Petersburg that operated from 1957 to 1997. DOE has been remediating contaminated locations across the site for more than 25 years.
