Solar Powered Dealership

Solar Panels ? Auto West BMW

Solar panels (aka photovoltaic cells) convert light energy directly into electricity. For the creation of our new dealership, we installed an array of solar panels at Auto West BMW, as well as at our MINI Richmond location. The collected electricity is used to power our Green Wall, with the surplus power used to offset our consumption from the BC hydroelectric grid.
