Peoples Bank & Trust is making strides in the going green trend. One of their biggest steps yet is the installation of solar panels at various locations.

Peoples Bank & Trust Co. has completed the installation of solar panels on six of the bank branch buildings. The panels were installed on the branch building rooftops of the Main Bank in Troy, Troy Square, Hawk Point, O’Fallon and Elsberry and as a covered parking canopy in Bowling Green. The solar arrays development and design were customized to each building in order to optimize performance. Each array consists of solar panels, microinverters, a panel racking system and a 24-hour monitoring system.

“The decision to utilize solar energy was two-fold,” said David Thompson, President/CEO of Peoples Bank. “We have the ability to take advantage of a renewable, clean source of energy that in turn allows the bank to save on energy costs. In addition, the use of solar energy is just another way the bank can be more environmentally friendly. We’re working hard to reduce the amount of waste generated by our banks and solar power is just another step in the right direction.”
