Just like many of our clients, the team at Goebel cares deeply about our environment and practices sustainability. Preserving our planet’s natural resources is always top-of-mind with every project we work on. Being good to our environment is not just our corporate responsibility, we are also committed to sustainability on a personal level.
Goebel is Solar Powered
During the summer of 2021, Goebel installed a 322-kilowatt system to the roof of our building. Our solar panel roof will help us make an environmental impact by reducing our carbon footprint. Another benefit of incorporating solar power into our building is that it will offset 20-30% of our energy usage, providing savings and lowering operating expenses.
Over 350,000 kWh are saved each year by having the solar array in place.
lbs of CO2
On average, 500,000 lbs of CO2 emissions are saved every year.
By having the solar array in place, our annual environmental benefit is equivalent to over 3,750 trees planted.
