Orlando, Fl (I-Newswire) January 27, 2013 - http://esarenewables.com/2013/01/orlando-mayor-dyer-works-along-with-ouc-and-esa-renewables-to-install-solar-panels-on-city-facility/

Orlando Mayor Dyer worked along with OUC Vice President of Customer & sustainable Services Bryon Knibbs and ESA Rewewables to install solar panels on the roof of the City's Fleet Management Division Building. The solar project is part of Green Works Orlando, the City's sustainability initiative to engage everyone who lives, works and visits Central Florida in the effort to "go green."

"Through Green Works Orlando, the City is working to ensure Orlando remains one of the most environmentally-conscious cities in our country," said Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. "A key part of our plan is investing in the next generation of clean, green energy, like solar, which will not only help us continue to prevent pollution, but also create new high-tech, high-wage jobs for our community and further diversify our economy."

At the event, Mayor Dyer and Knibbs joined the ESA Renewables construction team to help mount the three-foot by six-foot solar panels to the roof of the city facility. When complete in February, a total of 1,392 solar panels will be installed in the three array system, which covers about 50,000 square feet.

The 417 kilowatt solar array is estimated to save the City $800,000 in energy costs over its 25-year life. In total, the project will generate enough energy to power about 43 average Orlando homes and offset emissions equivalent to planting 2,400 trees and taking 2,375 vehicles off the road per year.

"We are proud to be a part of the City's efforts to move towards sustainable energy," said Jeffrey Burkett, President of ESA Renewables. "Not only does this project contribute to the health of our environment, it also has a positive effect on our economy through the creation of 20 green jobs."
