Equal Earth to work with businesses to reduce electricity costs

HAGÅTÑA, Guam (Pacific Daily News, March 6, 2014) – A California-based renewable energy solutions provider has partnered with a local company to help make green energy more affordable for Guam businesses.

Equal Earth recently expanded its commercial LED lighting services to include Guam and simultaneously partnered with JJ Global Services, a local facility maintenance company, to bring savings to businesses.

Stuart Graham, chief executive officer of First National Solar LLC, a company in Hawaii acquired by Equal Earth, said the first step the company will be taking with commercial customers here on island is the financing and installation of LED lighting systems.

Companies that are clients of Equal Earth will get a free energy assessment before any work is done. Then, Equal Earth will replace and maintain the LED lighting system installed for the next five years, Graham said.

Customers pay for the equipment and labor through the savings they receive by switching out their incandescent light bulbs.

Graham said that although the numbers are all over the board, the extremes in savings range from 20 percent to 50 percent of what a company currently pays in electricity for its lighting alone.

"It's an incredible system," Graham said. "Everybody wins."

Graham also said that Equal Earth is close to finalizing its commercial solar fund, which would use a similar financing model with solar panel equipment. From there, the company plans to look into a residential solar panel fund, Graham said.
