Extra Space Storage plans 30 more solar installations at facilities
Extra Space Storage will be developing solar energy systems at 30 additional properties following the signing of contracts with a project developer.
Core Development Group will design, develop and project manage the PV systems, which will be installed on the rooftops of the U.S. self-storage facilities. Extra Space Storage has recently been pursuing an aggressive sustainability strategy and has installed solar on many of its properties already.
Most recently, the storage unit chain was named in the “Top 25 Corporate Users by Number of Solar Installations” by Solar Energy Industries Association.
“Extra Space is pleased to launch a new partnership with Core Development Group to work together to create more clean, renewable solar energy,” Kurt Gnessin, Vice President of Facility Services at Extra Space Storage, said in a statement. “At Extra Space, our solar program is part of our larger sustainability goals. We believe that through these efforts, we can do what is best for our employees, our customers, our shareholders, our communities, and the environment.”
