TexStar National Bank Celebrates Solar Installation at Downtown Westside Branch
TexStar National Bank has implemented a plan to reduce fossil-fuel consumption at the lenderâ€™s San Antonio area office buildings. Bank officials say they are working to support the City of San Antonio area goals of becoming a clean-energy city and have already noticed an approximately 30% savings in overall energy costs. On Sunday, October 7, a â€œGreenâ€ ribbon cutting event was held at TexStarâ€™s Downtown Westside Branch, located at 803 W. Commerce Street.
The Bank was also chosen as a showcase property of the Annual Solar Bus Tour organized by the local non-profit, Solar San Antonio. Participants were able to ask questions of the Senior Project Engineer from Borrego Solar, the firm responsible for the design of TexStarâ€™s three branch solar installations about the cost and benefits of Solar Energy.
â€œAs a community bank we consistently strive to behave responsibly in all areas of business,â€ says the bankâ€™s CEO Byron Bexley.
