Local 48 has put its confidence in green technologies to the test and invested in the Union hall's infrastructure and retrofitted the employee parking lot with a 72 kWp solar panel system. We are anticipating a 13 year payback on the system but with increasing energy costs and the potential to sell off extra power through potential utility buyback programs, we believe the investment will exceed these predictions and the Local will realize an accelerated payback.
