Self-storage owners interested in creating an eco-friendly facility while saving money and generating additional revenue are invited to attend a free webinar titled, “ Solar Self-Storage Systems: Making Green While Going Green.” Scheduled for Sept. 2 at 2 p.m. ET, the one-hour online seminar will teach attendees what they need to make a solar self-storage project work, structurally and financially. It is hosted by Inside Self-Storage and presented by Bob Hayworth, owner and CEO of Baja Construction Inc., and Robin Heuer, CEO and chief learning officer for iParkSolar.
The speakers will discuss the advantages of adding solar technology to a self-storage project, including federal and state tax credits and grants, in addition to support of the environment and the creation of positive public appeal. Attendees will learn how a facility’s location, panel configuration and energy costs affect the project’s success. They’ll also see a detailed case study that addresses the issues of system costs, energy production and revenue generation.
Hayworth designed the patent-pending Solar Support System, in which photovoltaic panels are mounted to produce free, clean power. His company, Baja Construction, designs, engineers, supplies and installs self-storage and boat/RV-storage buildings and carports.
iParkSolar develops solar-integrated carports, RV/boat storage and integrated electrical-vehicle charging stations. Heuer oversees the company’s business operation including sales, marketing, business development, human resources, public policy and communications.
