An infographic is a fantastic way for Extra Space to tell their story to customers, investors and anyone interested in alternative energy solutions. It puts their efforts into context and shows the potential of how large their cumulative environmental impact could become. This one tells the story of how the company is adding solar panels to the roof space on some of it’s self storage facilities all across the country. The environmental, financial and community benefits are huge, and this was only the first year of a multi-year plan.
Extra Space Storage is on a mission to produce solar powered clean energy and reduce the carbon footprint of our 850+ self storage facilities. We aim to install 20,000 solar panels this year, and increase the pace of panel installation every year. Energy efficient clean power is good for our customers and our neighborhoods, our planet, and our investors. By the end of 2011 this program will save 2,000 tons of carbon dioxide and 100 acres of fir trees.
