When Dr. Pittman started looking into putting solar panels on his section of the roof, he had an epiphany – why not put them on the rest of the roof too, connect them to his tenants’ power meters, and save all of them thousands of dollars each year on their energy bills?
They worked with Coastal Solar to install a solar power system and have cut their energy bill by more than half! With the addition of the many tax benefits, they’ll experience a positive return on their investment in just a number of years – and will continue to save on energy for their family home for many more!
In 2014, with the help of Coastal Solar’s Keith Freeman, The Westin Dawn Beach Resort & Spa in St. Maarten became the largest solar resort in the Caribbean region. Over 2,600 solar panels with a capacity of nearly 800 kilowatts - enough to power over 100 average American homes - provide the resort with 1.2 million kilowatt hours a year.
