Massachusetts General Hospital installs 467-kW rooftop solar array

621 energy solar install

J.M. Electrical Company, Inc., premier professionals in advanced automated building system installations, and solar developer 621 Energy  completed a 476-kW solar PV energy system installation that will power the Massachusetts General Hospital research and parking facility located in Charlestown, Mass. The rooftop PV system was designed by 621 Energy and is expected to generate 568,000 kWh in its first year of production.

“We were excited to provide a leading hospital in the region with a smarter energy system to support the needs of the facility, and we hope to continue our relationship with them well into the future,” said Bob Clarke, President at 621 Energy. “In addition, J.M. Electrical has a strong track record and reputation in the region, and we appreciated working with a respected company to ensure the project’s successful completion.”

This project consists of 1,487 solar panels and 17 solar inverters that will help save the hospital approximately $95,000 annually. In addition to the solar system installation, 621 Energy and J.M. Electrical technicians mounted the solar PV system on the roof using a cutting edge racking system to account for high winds and building height. J.M. Electrical staff oversaw all day-to-day operations throughout the three-month project schedule to ensure that it was completed on time and on budget.

“This was an incredibly rewarding project that allowed us to work with a commercial solar developer located in the region on one of the country’s leading hospitals in order to give them a reliable source of power through clean, solar energy,” said Adam Palmer, Project Manager at J.M. Electrical. “This solar system is the latest step in our on-going work with Massachusetts General Hospital as they continue their efforts to install reliable systems that meet their needs throughout their facilities.”

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
