Self-storage operator A-AAAKey Mini Storage with facilities in nine states, is in the process of installing solar panel systems at nine of its Texas properties to reduce costs and the company's carbon footprint. The solar-panel systems are being installed by Self Reliant Solar, an Austin, Texas-based manufacturer and provider of solar-panel power.
Once completed, the systems are expected to generate 1 million kilowatt hours of electricity for an expected savings of $93,000 annually. The combined systems are expected to reduce the self-storage company’s electricity usage by 55 percent.
A-AAAKey Mini Storage is owned by Brundage Management Co. Inc., a San Antonio, Texas-based firm that provides third-party management services including human resources, employee recruitment and training, advertising, accounting, licensing and auditing, information technology, representation on state and national boards and governing bodies, and long-term strategic planning. A-AAAKey operates more than 40 self-storage facilities throughout Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas.
