“Going green” means more than helping the planet in the case of marine dealership Lakeview Marine. By installing a 160-panel solar energy system, the company is seeing $10,000+ in annual electricity savings and $13,000+ in annual green income. The green income (SRECs) lasts for 10 years. The electricity savings last indefinitely.

The solar energy system is installed on two buildings. To the left of the building in the photo is an even bigger roof with more panels. (It’s too flat to see the panels in a photograph.)

A little local color for you: Lakeview Marine is located on the shore of Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg. Click here for the history of the lake with the longest name of any lake in the world.
