The bioremediation research lab in San Clemente switches from dirty to clean energy
SAN CLEMENTE (June 15, 2017) – REGENESIS is an environmental remediation solutions company who is one of the latest in San Clemente to join the solar energy revolution after the installation of an 85,000-watt solar system. Sullivan Solar Power, who was selected for the project, is the only company in Orange County with the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioner (NABCEP) Company Accreditation, the gold standard recognition in the solar industry.
REGENESIS aims to be a leader in research for technology-based solutions for environmental contamination, and solar was a no-brainer. Some of REGENESIS’ projects have been to remove petroleum contaminants from former gas stations, help purify local groundwater and reduce the impact of harmful chemicals on the surrounding communities. While employees work hard to help develop remediation solutions to protect the environment and human health, they will now also be contributing toward a sustainable future in their own workplace.
“As an environmental company, going solar with Sullivan Solar Power reinforces a core value at REGENESIS to focus on rehabilitating and sustaining the Earth for future generations” said Joy Gravitt, Operations Manager at REGENESIS, “It shows that from product conception to application, we are conscious of our impact on the environment and are taking steps to minimize negative effects.”
REGENESIS serves over 26 countries with 20,000 completed projects. The new Sullivan Solar Power system will offset over 166 tons of CO2 emissions each year, which is equivalent to roughly 1,185 barrels of oil not consumed. In addition to the environmental benefits from solar, the financial savings will also be substantial. REGENESIS is estimated to save $1,384,282 over the next 25 years, offsetting 63 percent of their electricity usage.
“Our vision at Sullivan Solar Power is to fundamentally change the way our region generates electricity,” stated President and CEO Daniel Sullivan. “We are excited to have helped the San Clemente community, who is already showing a great adoption of sustainable practice, grow one step closer towards a clean energy future”.
REGENESIS’ Sullivan Solar Power system is comprised of 288 solar panels, with an expected useful life of more than 40 years. In addition, Sullivan Solar Power will continue to monitor the system for the next 25 years, ensuring both the cost savings and environmental benefits of the solar system.
Sullivan Solar Power also installed solar for the San Clemente Aquatic Center and 55 residential homes in the area. The company has developed a rigid quality assurance and quality control program that has allowed the firm to secure multiple contracts with other large scale organizations such as the University of California Irvine, Camp Pendleton, the Port of Long Beach and the Naval Facilities Engineering Command.
