National Bank of Arizona

What’s Green About This Workplace?

“National Bank of Arizona is finalizing the install of a $2million solar system on our Tucson headquarters. At 402.6 kilowatts, the project is the second largest corporate install in Tucson. The 24,000 square-foot installation of 1,320 panels is being placed on three structures located on the rooftop of the parking garage at the Wilmot Road and Carondelet offices. The system will reduce electricity costs of the two buildings by 25% and will produce at least 580,000 kilowatt hours annually within the buildings. The reduction in electricity equates to the average annual consumption of 55 homes in Tucson.”
