Sustainability and savings with the best solar panels.


The ARCO Gas Station in Moreno Valley, California promises customers that “paying less on gas at ARCO” will allow them to “spend a little more on fun” The gas station’s owners themselves decided they wanted to save money themselves, because they were paying $5,105/month on electricity.


The gas station discovered Aikyum Solar online on Yelp and Google as a best value solar installer. After their due diligence and a competitive proposal, the church chose Aikyum Solar and asked us to install custom solar panels for them. For more information on Aikyum’s installation process, visit this page.


After Aikyum Solar installed solar panels for the ARCO Gas Station’s owners, their electric bill costs them $3,678/month on average. That’s a decrease of over $1,000.  They saved $18,858 on taxes, and their payback period is 1.9 years. Their savings will continue as they’ll save $17,124 each year as long as they keep their solar panels. Aikyum is happy to help your gas station receive similar savings!


Harina’s team was diligent and delivered a great solar solution for our gas station in a timely manner. Several solar contractors refused to undertake such a difficult gas station solar installation job, but Aikyum Solar was daring enough to deliver. It’s understandable why the other contractors were scared. The work had to be done at night to avoid traffic and there was a risk of puncturing the underground gas pipes during trenching, but those obstacles didn’t scare Harina and her team.

Aikyum helped us obtain the Moreno Valley Utility Rebate so we saved $50,000. Our system payback was under two years, and the system has been generating optimally for the past three years. We’re sure it will continue to do so. If you own a gas station, contact Aikyum Solar for your solar energy needs.
