Solar energy, a clean and environment-friendly form of power, can dramatically reduce your utility bills. Delaware's Motech Americas LLC, a subsidiary of Motech Industries, has announced that 1,430 of its U.S. manufactured 300-Watt solar panels are being installed at leading Landover, MD baking facility. These solar panels that use a renewable energy source are contributing to the annual elimination of 869,000 lbs. of CO2 emissions, 1,405 lbs. of nitrogen dioxide emissions and 3,200 lbs. of sulfur dioxide emissions while reducing electricity costs by some $250,000.
The system, being used at 'GoldCrust Baking,' began construction in the fourth quarter of 2013 and will be fully operational in 2014.
MOTECH Americas strives to create a sustainable environment for future generations and works to provide a global source of clean and renewable energy.
Dave Holleran, Senior Manager of Module Sales for Motech Americas, said in a statement, "This is a valuable and responsible undertaking, because of the significantly reduced environmental footprint that will result. Specifically, the project will have very tangible environmental benefits, including the equivalent of 909,407 car miles not driven and 10,126 trees grown for 10 years.”
He added, “1,430 pcs of MOTECH 300-watt Solar PV Panels are being installed. This will provide GoldCrust with 545,000 kwh's of clean electricity annually, and more than 10.3Mill kwh's over the term of the Power Purchase Agreement.”
Motech Americas is the most experienced manufacturer of solar modules with its Newark, Delaware facility in operations for more than 20 years.
According to Chris D. Fraga, Founder & CEO of SolarSense and Alternative Energy Development Group, which holds the Power Purchase Agreement on the project, said, “With this in mind, SolarSense was brought in to develop, finance, construct, own and operate the Solar PV System on the Power Purchase Agreement basis. And, based on our experience, we knew that Motech would be the ideal panel manufacturer.”
