Freedom Solar, headquartered in Austin, signed a contract with Lost Pines Toyota in Bastrop, TX, for a major solar power installation. Upon completion, the installation means that the dealership at 806 SH 71 W. will be the first in Bastrop, which is southeast of Austin, to install solar power panels. The project is scheduled for completion by the end of this year.
The installation will include more than 700 solar panels on all of the 34,000-square-foot dealer’s rooftops; these will produce 366 megawatt hours of solar power annually.
The dealership is the only LEED Gold-certified one in the Austin area. Other green initiatives include a water-collection cistern and handwashing vehicles to reduce water usage. “Lost Pines Toyota is already a leader in green initiative, and with this installation, they will take a giant leap forward in terms of sustainability and cost savings,” said Freedom Solar’s Bret Biggart.
