Metro Storage LLC, which operates 85 facilities under the Metro Self Storage brand, has launched a green initiative that includes adding solar panels to select facilities in several states. The company has 19 solar projects that are either complete or under construction or agreement, according to a press release.

Once the solar installations are finalized, Metro estimates that they will generate 7 million kWh of renewable energy annually. It’ll account for 50% of the company’s electricity consumption, the release stated.

“We looked at our stores, which are located in states that have favorable policies and incentives for solar-power installations,” said Nick Gerou, chief investment officer. “Over the next three to five years, our goal is to have rooftop solar installations that produce as much electricity as our portfolio of properties use.”

In addition solar panels, Metro’s eco-friendly plans include retrofitting its properties with LED lighting, installing motion-activated light systems, reducing water consumption and developing new sites using tilt-up construction.

Metro Storage is a privately owned international company specializing in the acquisition construction, development and management of self-storage facilities in Central America and the United States. It’s owned by Metro Storage International, whose affiliates operate properties in Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala and El Salvador under the Mr. B's brand name.
