Gas Station running on green energy may seem like a contradiction in terms. However, a Betare-Oya owner has turned to solar power system to keep the lights on at his downtown gas station.
Bocom gas station belonging to Martin was the first solar powered gas station in the State.“I think it’s gonna bring in more business and people will think I’m environmentally friendly,” he said.
Martin hired a local company to install more than 80 solar panels on the canopy just above where customers pump their gas station, the batteries and controlling systems placed in a little room closed to the gas station.
Considering the benefits he has received, Martin said he would like to pay off her investment within four years. “With the incentives available now and the technology has improved, it’s made it possible for people to get solar energy without having such a long payback period,” Martin said.
