Decatur Self Storage is proud to be one of the first and only fully solar powered storage faciility in Georgia. We have minimal maintenance costs and are able to provide green energy while to date avoiding in excess of 155,000 pounds of CO2. Our customers participate in green technology while paying no more rent than other facilities. Our system is also interconnected with Georgia Power, which allows us to sell excess electric production.
Because solar powered systems last upwards of 25 years and have no moving parts, we have minimal maintenance costs and are able to leverage our customer's investment over a very long time frame to save them money. The components for the solar project include solar panels from Georgia-based Suniva with 396 255W modules and 12 MA Sunnyboy 7000 inverters. The system is estimated to produce 134,000 kWh of power annually, and provides more than 100 percent of Decatur Self Storage's electricity needs.
