Ameresco has announced the completion of a comprehensive solar PV installation for the Bank of America corporate campus in Chandler, Arizona. The campus is now home to nearly 10,000 solar modules that will offset approximately 60% of the electricity demands of the campus annually.

The solar installations include arrays on building rooftops and covered carports, providing shade for employee and visitor parking spaces. It also includes EV charging stations, a solar-powered ATM and solar powered benches throughout the campus that employees and visitors can use to charge personal devices such as smart phones and tablets.

“In 2019, Bank of America reached Carbon Neutrality through efforts like this project. While it is a good start, we aim to be Net Zero before 2050,” said Mark O’Grady, Real Estate Portfolio Management Executive at Bank of America. “Not only is it one of the largest behind-the-meter solar projects west of Ohio, but it also gives our employees something they’ve been asking for — great covered parking spaces.”

Project construction began in November 2020 and was completed in August 2021.
