Envision Solar, General Motors to kick off national solar initiative at Fremont Cadillac Buick GMC

The initiative will significantly lessen Fremont Cadillac Buick GMC’s carbon footprint. The Solar Tree(R) array will create a reduction of the dealership’s greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to more than 2,500 gallons of gas consumed or 52 barrels of oil per year. The carbon offset will be greater than that produced by five acres of pine forest or by diverting 8 tons of waste from a landfill. Fremont Cadillac Buick GMC’s installation of the highly architected array will lower their environmental impact as well as improve the region’s built environment.

Equipped with integrated electric vehicle charging stations, the Solar Tree(R) array can generate enough renewable energy to completely charge six electric vehicles each day. Envision Solar’s proprietary tracking system, EnvisionTrak(TM), causes the array to follow the sun capturing more of its energy and increasing electrical output by nearly 25 percent over typical fixed solar installations.
