The marketplace: it’s competitive, and you need every advantage you can get. So whether you’re answering to shareholders as the CEO of a publicly-traded company or working with a smaller group of business partners, friends, and family, it’s your responsibility to find a competitive edge.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

When Green Applications – one of the largest printers and distributors of textile merchandise and heat-applied graphics on the East Coast – was looking to move to a new facility in 2014, company leadership knew that renewable energy would be a critical part of the company’s future. So they turned to Sun Tribe Solar to build a system that would save them money but also show that the company was ready to embrace the community’s desire for industrial neighbors guided by sustainability.

To reduce the need for up-front capital, Sun Tribe guided Green Applications into the VirginiaSAVES™ program – securing investors interested in a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with the company. The result? Green Applications only pays for the energy it uses; an essential difference for the company’s bottom line.

“This solar power project is a great example of how investment in renewable energy can have a positive impact on the environment, but also a long term financial impact by reducing our utility costs.”

-Green Applications CEO, Robert Butters

Today, this Sun Tribe system provides Green Applications with 50 percent of the power it needs to run this facility, making it the largest behind-the-meter PPA project since the program was introduced. Further proof that Sun Tribe is continually on the leading edge of solar innovations.
