Group 1 Automotive Installs 10,000 Solar Panels on Dealership Rooftops
One of the largest car dealership groups in the United States, Group 1 Automotive, has taken a significant step towards sustainability by completing the installation of 10,000 solar panels across multiple dealership locations. Energy costs represent a substantial operational expense for car dealerships, and rooftop solar installations are seen as a way to combat these expenses while reducing their carbon footprint. Many car dealerships are turning to solar power to ensure a reliable source of electricity while also offsetting high energy consumption.
Commitment to Sustainability and Renewable Energy
In this latest venture, Group 1 Automotive partnered with Freedom Solar Power to install the extensive array of solar panels. While the exact locations of the installations were not disclosed, the company has expressed its commitment to expanding its solar initiatives. Group 1 Automotive aims to complete solar installations at 25 dealerships by the conclusion of 2024, aligning with its broader sustainability goals and the growing trend of renewable energy adoption within the automotive industry.
