The HERC facility in Commerce City, Colorado recently completed the installation of solar panels as part of Hertz’s solar energy program expansion. This location is one of the 16 that will be completed before the end of the year.

The Hertz Corporation’s solar energy program continues to expand with the installation of solar electric systems at various Hertz locations.

The most recent installation was completed at a Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation (HERC) facility in Commerce City, Colorado. Hertz is the first equipment rental corporation in the nation to announce the completion of a solar power facility.

Installation of solar panels will continue at the following HERC locations in the upcoming months: Tucson, Ariz.; Augusta, Ga.; Bogart, Ga.; Norcross, Ga.; Boston, Mass.; Baltimore, Md.; Newark, N.J.; and Harrisburg, Pa.

The project is a part of Hertz’s initiative to install solar electric systems across the United States. Earlier this year, Hertz announced that it will be completing the installation of solar electric systems at 16 Hertz facilities throughout the United States. Other locations include Hertz facilities in Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.
