Alder Foods was looking for a way to improve energy efficiency as a part of their company goal of improving the environment, but wanted to do so while making a smart investment.
Alder Foods partnered with Solect to design and install a 108 kW system on the roof the company’s Walpole facility, offsetting electricity costs through the energy created and generating return on investment through SREC sales.
$25,000 yearly savings on electricity costs
The 108 kW system offsets electricity costs through the energy created, and also generates return on investment through Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SREC) sales. The system saves the company close to $25,000 in electricity costs annually, and related SREC credits will also produce a similar amount of total return.
