Repairing a solar system heavily damaged by a storm

Located in Plymouth, MA, JD Cordage owns a 55-acre waterfront commercial property, formerly housing the Plymouth Cordage Company, a centuries-old rope and twine manufacturer.


A large portion of the property’s 443.800 kW solar array had been heavily damaged during a storm in October 2021. The severe storm damaged the roof membrane and flipped over an entire section of their solar panels, warranting a time-consuming and complex repair process.


The Solect O&M team removed all of the damaged equipment, including 125 solar panels, and disconnected all electrical connections to ensure safety while the roof replacement plan was strategized and executed.

Once the damaged roof was replaced in early 2023, Solect rebuilt the entire solar system – installing all new equipment and resuming a full-scale, successful operation.

Besides the O&M team’s robust service, JD Cordage appreciated the information Solect shared to help them navigate the insurance claiming process.
