Denny's W. Sacramento Partners With SOL POWER On Power Purchase Agreement Project To Save Over One Million Dollars

West Sacramento, CA /PRNewswire/ - Denny's Franchise owner Bobby Chao, president of Fushin Enterprises, Inc. announced today, on Earth Day 2017, that Denny's W. Sacramento located in West Sacramento, CA has entered into a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for electricity generated from a 105.6 kW-dc solar carport system.

The project, planned and developed by Patrick A. Weller, president of Sol Power Energy, LLC (SOL POWER) and designed, built, and financed by Spectrum Energy Development, Inc. is expected to reduce the electric energy purchased by Denny's W. Sacramento from Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) by over 65%.

The solar carport system and PPA will provide Denny's W. Sacramento with solar energy savings estimated at one million dollars over the term of the PPA. The environmental benefits result in the reduction of roughly 4,000 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, equivalent to planting over 90,000 trees.

About Denny's:
Denny's W. Sacramento owner Bobby Chao relocated the Denny's in 2012 to its current location in West Sacramento and built a LEED-Certified Restaurant. In 2016 he partnered with Patrick A. Weller, president of SOL POWER to realize the goal of providing solar photovoltaic power as a primary means of energy for small businesses.

Says Chao: "This project is a win-win for the planet and our children."

SOL POWER offers a professional service for small and medium-sized owners that desire to mitigate the technical, financial, operational, and security risks typically associated with the implementation of conservation and solar energy programs.

As SOL POWER president Patrick A. Weller explains: "Our precedent standard of care and process are based upon the historic monetization of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds as investment capital for California local governments."

"Over the past 25 years," Weller continues, "I have saved consumers hundreds of millions of dollars through the reduction of utility cost, internal operational expense, and the avoidance of environmental penalties. However, obtaining a Solar Power Purchase Agreement for a small business owner that literally had nowhere to turn to reduce his utility expense was very special."
