Solar Power Project Helps Mississauga Self Storage Go Green

Posted by msmessenger on Dec 16, 2013 12:00:00 AM

The government of Ontario has assisted in speeding up this development by presenting a Feed-In-Tariff (FIT) Program where building proprietors can put in solar panels on top of their roofs to produce green energy, and feed in to the current hydro grid. Secure Self Storage in Mississauga is taking full advantage of this green resource.

The Mississauga storage facility is in the process of final stages of design which will hopefully be operational in 2014. This system delivers jobs to the Toronto suburb, it takes advantage of the ordinary sunlight and will be used to help power homes in the immediate area of the storage facility. Talk about giving back to the community.

A company spokesperson said, “At Secure Self Storage, we love the point that we will be producing green electricity not just for ourselves but for our neighbors in Mississauga as well. We are all about giving back to the communities that support our business.”

The install procedure involves solar panels being attached with a clamping system to the roof tops, and an inverter is wired to the panels and solar generated power is fed back into the electrical grid. A sophisticated metering system analyzes and tracks hydro production throughout the year and the possessor of the solar system is then paid monthly by the Ontario Power Authority for the electricity they have generated.

The Ontario FIT Program is intended to inspire groundbreaking, alternative energy expansion that is environmentally friendly and safe. It affords a way to not only be helpful to the community and the greater environment but it also forms an extra income source for the already successful storage facility. The panels will even likely allow the Mississauga storage facility to lower their current low prices for self storage unit rentals.

While the process is extensive and costly, Secure Self Storage feels that it is important to take a leadership role in going Green and we are excited to be contributing to this growing development. Secure Self Storage has situated itself as an accountable environmental steward and forerunner in the community that we serve.

“Our U.S. storage location in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware has already undergone a similar Green improvement. Plans are proceeding to advance the other Secure Self Storage locations as well,” said a company spokesperson.

Solar energy has become an increasingly popular opportunity that businesses are taking to show they do care about the world that they live in. Mississauga Secure Self Storage is eager to be a leader in the process of going Green and making the world a better place.
