Powered by the sun
Balboa Express Carwash installed solar power to harness the power of the sun’s energy and make cars clean, shiny and beautiful in San Diego.And we produce 67% of our electricity. The clean energy produced from solar in three months offsets as much CO2 as if Balboa Express Carwash had planted 165 trees.
In addition to installing solar photovoltaic (PV) panels, solar thermal panels were also installed. Solar thermal panels contain tubes that are connected to the water tank of the carwash. The thermal panels warm the water up and then send it to the tank. A carwash needs warm water because it is better for washing, so thermal panels reduce the electricity used, turning cold water into warm water.
