B.H. Granning Landscaping Inc. is a local large-scale landscaping company located in Sylva, NC. Since their start in 2004, B.H. Granning Landscaping Inc. has tackled projects big and small. Serving Western North Carolina and Northern Georgia, from large-scale commercial projects to small residential needs, B.H. Granning Landscaping Inc. has done it all. However, in 2015, one thing they had not achieved was creating a more energy-friendly space for their business. “Our energy bill was getting way too high,” said Heather Kindy, Office Manager. “We had to do something about it but didn’t know where to start.”
After a referral from other businesses, B.H. Granning Landscaping Inc. discovered REAP (Rural Energy for America Program). “We wanted our business to not only be more energy efficient, but also be able to utilize our natural resources!” said Kindy. After applying for a REAP grant in 2015, B.H. Granning Landscaping Inc. received $15,925 in grant funds to install a 22.2 Kw solar energy system. “The system is made up of 78 panels total,” said Kindy. “Sundance Power Systems did an excellent job of installing and teaching us all about our new solar energy system!”
After having the system for about three years now, B.H. Granning Landscaping Inc. can really see the positive impact it has made on their business. “We use this system to power everything in the building,” said Kindy. “Our energy bill is practically nothing and we highly recommend the REAP program to other businesses that want to become more energy efficient.”
