Trussville Storage receives USDA grant for solar power installation

Trussville Storage | December 30, 2021

Trussville Storage, an Alabama-based self-storage company, along with Jefferson County Commissioner Joe Knight, announce the receipt of a grant from the USDA for the installation of its solar power installation at 7900 Gadsden Highway in Trussville. In January 2021 Trussville Storage began its investigation of adding solar power to its facility on Gadsden Highway in Trussville. Despite limited inventory of materials and a disrupted supply chain, installation proceeded on schedule. The system has been operational since early November. "The availability of a grant from the USDA was an important factor in moving forward with the project proposed by Eagle Solar & Light" say David Protiva and Mark Titshaw of Trussville Storage. "We expect to cover about 61% of our energy use with this installation and even can sell power back to Alabama Power at times." Commercial solar in Alabama not only generates exceptional financial returns, as we have utility rates well in excess of the national average, but is also the best step toward achieving corporate sustainability goals. Climate controlled self-storage facilities produce energy consumption profiles that fit daily and weekly solar energy generation parameters very well." Samuel Yates, CEO of Eagle Solar & Light Jefferson County Commissioner Joe Knight said "we welcome the new owners of Trussville Storage, David Protiva and Mark Titshaw, to Jefferson County and to the City of Trussville. I am impressed with their innovative approach of using solar power to partially supply the energy needs at this expanded facility on Highway 11. Jefferson County has come a long way in the last few years and we are excited about the direction in which we are heading. We look forward to other new businesses that will be coming to our county." Trussville Storage manager, Kelly Epps, said, "The new owners have been working hard since November 2020 to make sure this facility remains the best self-storage facility in the area. Earlier this year, we completed our transition to all LED lighting and now with the solar power, the owners are showing again they want to be responsible corporate citizens." About Trussville Storage Trussville Storage is a self-storage facility located in Trussville, AL. The facility offers over 53,000 square feet of rentable storage space, both in climate-controlled units and in non climate-controlled units. The company is currently building an additional building which will offer over 13,000 additional square feet of climate-controlled storage space. About Jefferson County Jefferson County is a County in U.S. state of Alabama. Its location includes the city of Birmingham and suburban areas. The population estimate was 658,000 in 2019.

Hartree Partners Starts 4GW Solar Enterprise AMPYR Solar Europe

Hartree Partners | February 02, 2021

Hartree Partners has reported the dispatch of another solar enterprise, AMPYR Solar Europe (ASE). The new organization is the consequence of a joint endeavor between the energy exchanging organization, AGP Group and NaGa Solar. ASE will build up an arrangement of at any rate 4GW of solar tasks in the UK, the Netherlands and Germany. It expands on Hartree's current partnership with AGP, with the two organizations previously creating 1.5GW of coastal breeze, solar PV and related battery stockpiling in the UK. The UK resources will join with those generally being worked on in the Netherlands and Germany through NaGa also. ASE will join AGP's enormous scope inexhaustible force project advancement experience, Hartree's force exchanging examination and NaGa's territory improvement ability, the organizations said. Together they will have the option to accelerate the form out of solar, and offer a €1 billion speculation opportunity. Stephen Hendel, a founding partner at Hartree, said the company was “really excited” to be working with AGP and NaGa on the joint venture. “The scale of the proposed development represents a major addition to Europe’s solar capacity and offers institutional infrastructure investors the opportunity to benefit from the diverse skill sets ASE brings together.” Solar will assume a vital part in the energy frameworks of countries across Europe as nations move towards carbon impartiality, yet this will require a huge scope work out. Another report from research organization Ember a week ago featured that sustainable limit should significantly increase if environment objectives are to be met. In the UK, in spite of difficulties made by an absence of appropriations and the COVID-19 pandemic 545MWp (DC) of new solar PV limit was introduced during 2020. This is relied upon to fill further in 2021, as the market's sans endowment stage accumulates pace. “To continue to generate strong consistent returns from solar, we believe investors must deploy capital earlier in the development process as well as embrace new technologies such as batteries and hydrogen,” said Henny Pelsers, CEO of NaGa. “Partnering with AGP and Hartree allows us to accelerate the speed and expand the number of sites we could have developed on our own and will provide the quick deployment of capital necessary to build a large portfolio of attractive solar investment opportunities.”
