OCEANSIDE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pacific Marine Credit Union (PMCU) has completed a 422-kw carport solar system at their Oceanside Headquarters.

The system was designed and built by REC Solar, a leading provider of commercial, public sector and utility-scale solar solutions. It consists of 1,224 individual panels that generate 743,000 kilowatt hours of electricity annually. The energy generated from the solar array is estimated to save PMCU $125,000 a year while producing about 85% of the power needed at the facility.

As part of the system, there are two solar powered car charging stations with the ability to charge up to four electric vehicles simultaneously.

“We are excited about this project,” said Bill Birnie, President/CEO at Pacific Marine Credit Union. “Solar helps us lower our operating costs, reduces our impact on the environment and brings benefits like shade and electric vehicle charging to our members and staff.”

“Solar carports are a creative way to leverage existing space,” said Alan Russo, senior vice president of Sales and Marketing at REC Solar. “Pacific Marine Credit Union is generating real value with this investment and we are proud to support their business.”
