Old Time Sports

Client Profile

Old Time Sports is a family-owned an apparel company located on the North Shore of Massachusetts. The company is an NHL licensee, providing apparel to sporting teams across North America.

Challenge

The three brothers that own OTS grew up playing outdoor pond hockey in Massachusetts and wanted to do their part for the environment so that future generations could have the same experiences. The company wanted to “go big” with solar, and was looking for a solution that covered virtually all of the company’s annual electricity needs.

Solution

OTS did their homework when looking for a solar project developer and selected Solect Energy Development of Hopkinton. Solect deployed a 175 kW solar renewable energy solution on roof of the 35,000-square-foot OTS headquarters in Salisbury, MA.

Results

The system is expected to cover 100 percent of the company’s annual electricity needs, generating up to $70,000 a year in environmentally friendly electricity.
