While it is a good start, we aim to be Net Zero before 2050,” said Mark O’Grady, Real Estate Portfolio Management Executive at Bank of America. “Not only is it one of the largest ‘behind the meter’ solar projects west of Ohio, but it also gives our employees something they’ve been asking for, great covered parking spaces.”
“We are so honored to have implemented this project for the employees and stakeholders of the Bank of America Chandler campus,” said Bob Georgeoff, Executive Vice President, Ameresco. “By investing in renewable energy technologies to offset on-site usage, Bank of America is making progress toward their goals for carbon reduction while providing meaningful change for clean energy advancement in the community.”
