A South Jersey fire department is going green.
On Thursday, November 29th, officials with Infiniti Energy Services and the Rio Grande Fire Company held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially mark the completion of a sustainable solar energy system for the fire company.
Officials say this solar energy project will not only help save the planet, but will also help the fire department and the community save money.
"Just continue to help show the community that by going with green energy and renewable energy sources that it is a way to benefit both the community as well as taxpayers and facilities that we're working for," said Michael Kushner, director of operations for Infiniti Energy Services.
The completion of this project will help to save the Rio Grande Fire Company more than $239,000 over the life of the system.
Officials with Infiniti Energy Services and their affiliates specialize in helping community organizations like places of worship, schools, service clubs, and public safety institutions with sustainable energy systems at non up-front or long-term cost to them.
