Dynamic Energy Solutions LLC, a full-service solar energy solutions provider, completed a rooftop solar array on Barrette Outdoor Living’s manufacturing facility in Galloway, N.J. Dynamic Energy Solutions designed and built the system for Barrette, a North American manufacturer of vinyl and aluminum fencing, composite decking, residential and commercial railing, and lattice products.
The 2 MW system is comprised of 6,554 solar modules and is estimated to generate more than 2.6 MWh in the first year of operation, supplying more than 50 percent of the facility’s electricity consumption. The rooftop array, built on an otherwise dormant roof space, is estimated to save Barrette more than $6 million through its lifetime, significantly reducing facility operating expenses while simultaneously demonstrating Barrette’s commitment to both environmental stewardship and the local communities.
“We are very excited to have completed one of the largest rooftop solar arrays in Atlantic County,” said Brett Thibodeau, President of Dynamic Energy Solutions. “As a sophisticated and innovative industrial manufacturer, Barrette’s decision to work with Dynamic to deploy solar at this scale is a testament to the substantial economic and operational benefits that these types of projects provide. We look forward to expanding our collaboration with them in years to come through additional projects.”
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.
