Challenge

NE Resins’ massive facility carries significant maintenance and operations expenses on a yearly basis, and they were looking for a way to offset these costs. Solar turned out to be the perfect solution considering the large flat roof on the 100,000-square-foot warehouse.

Solution

Solect Energy partnered with New England Resins to install a 548 kW system on the roof of its facility. The system produces nearly twice the amount of electricity that New England Resins needs to power its business.

Results

100% reduction of electricity costs

New England Resins 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.
