harnessing the sun

With a history of serving the Tucson community for 83 years, Radiology Ltd. saw solar as a sound financial decision, as well as a way to give back to their local community. The solar power systems installed will help reduce harmful emissions into the atmosphere while providing shaded parking for patients and staff. 

Generating an average of 978,860 kilowatt hours of clean energy per year, Radiology Ltd.'s solar systems are expected to offset the burning of 978,860 pounds of coal, the release of 2,178,525 pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, and the consumption of 493,930 gallons of water that would otherwise be used for the generation of fossil fuel energy according to estimates provided by Tucson Electric Power. 

Having served Tucson for over 80 years, working with local partners and keeping jobs in the community is vitally important to Radiology Ltd. “Going Green” with TFS not only helps the environment and reduces our energy expenses but also supports the local economy. In addition to the environmental benefits, the project will provide our patients with covered parking to protect vehicles from the hot summer sun!
— David Jeck, M.D., President, Radiology Ltd.

Following the completion of their Rancho Vistoso and Camp Lowell solar systems in December 2015, as well as their Wilmot system in April 2016, Radiology Ltd. continues to work with Technicians For Sustainability on a new solar system which is currently under design at a fourth campus location.
