Bank of America campus gets 10,000 new solar panels

By Mike Sunnucks | Rose Law Group Reporter

Bank of America’s corporate campus in Chandler has been outfitted with 10,000 solar panels and modules as part of a renewable energy effort.

Ameresco Inc. (NYSE: AMRC) outfitted the bank’s East Valley campus. The effort will initially offset 60% of the electricity demands at BofA’s campus.

“The solar installations include arrays on building rooftops and covered carports, providing shade for employee and visitor parking spaces. It also includes electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, a solar-powered ATM and solar powered benches throughout the campus that employees and visitors can use to charge personal devices such as smartphones and tablets,” Ameresco said in a release.

“In 2019, Bank of America reached carbon neutrality through efforts like this project. While it is a good start, we aim to be Net Zero before 2050,” said Mark O’Grady, real estate portfolio management executive at Bank of America. “Not only is it one of the largest ‘behind the meter’ solar projects west of Ohio, but it also gives our employees something they’ve been asking for, great covered parking spaces.”

The campus is located near the Loop 101 freeway and Chandler Boulevard in the East Valley. Approximately 3,400 BofA workers are located at the Chandler campus.

Massachusetts-based Ameresco began the solar project in November 2020.
