BELLMAWR, NJ – Independence Solar announces the completion of a 390 kW rooftop solar array at General Floor Industries’ corporate headquarters and distribution center in Bellmawr, NJ. General Floor selected Independence Solar as their partner for all aspects of the installation of 1,298 solar panels. This installation will offset almost 100% of the electrical needs of the facility.
James Smith, CFO at General Floor Industries, commented: “Solar was a logical next step for our company and has delivered a sound return on investment. Independence Solar made the project easy and continues to be there even after the installation to ensure that our system is always operating at peak levels. We are very pleased with their continuous support and dedication to our investment.”
Keith Peltzman, President at Independence Solar, shared: “It’s been a pleasure to work with such a forward-thinking client like General Floor. Their leadership saw the value in solar and was able to execute on this vision. Our goal was to deliver solar to General Floor without any impact on their daily operations and to exceed the baseline projections that we set for them. We are proud to include General Floor as one of our key clients.”
This installation incorporates several state of the art solar safety features including string-level monitoring, arc-fault current interrupting (AFCI) devices on the roof and remote disconnect contact combiners.
