Project Description

New England Resins and Pigments Corporation

New England Resins is a regional chemical and packaging products distributor based in Woburn, Mass. Solect Energy Development partnered with New England Resins to install a 548 kW system on the roof of its 100,000-square-foot warehouse. The system, one of the largest roof-based solar PV (photovoltaic) systems in New England, produces nearly twice the amount of electricity that New England Resins needs to power its business.

New England Resins has decided to donate its excess electricity to a nearby Woburn non-profit. Through a program called Net Metering, excess electricity from New England Resins is metered to the Woburn Council for Social Concern, giving them a substantial savings on their electric bill. In return, New England Resins is able to take advantage of significant state and federal incentives, including SRECs, which pay the company a fee per kilowatt of electricity generated via solar.
