While fossil fuels are still very much in use and will be for the near future, solar is the perfect complement to a gas station. This is exactly the case for one ARCO station in Redwood City.
The ARCO station owned by Bay Area Oil, Inc. is located at 504 Whipple Ave Redwood City, CA. In March 2017, a 39.6 kW system was installed to help reduce the station’s monthly electric bill by about 34%. That adds up to about $780 per month in savings!
The benefits don’t stop there – as far as helping our environment, this solar power system reduces energy needs and is equivalent of planting 14 acres of trees, avoiding almost 45,000 lbs of pollution annually.

Not only does solar save money, it’s an investment into sustainable energy. Win – Win!
