GUILFORD, CT — Independence Solar announces the completion of a 135 kW rooftop solar array for the headquarters of Bio-Med Devices in Guilford, CT. The installation contains 520 panels and will offset more than 80% of the building’s annual usage, which is equivalent to powering over 30 average American homes. Independence Solar worked with its installation partner, Branford-based Pat Munger Construction, to complete the project on time and on budget.
Dean Bennett, President of Bio-Med Devices comments: “Investing in a solar system is a great way to make a financially savvy decision while demonstrating Bio-Med’s commitment to the Guilford community and the environment. The Independence Solar and Munger team guided us through the whole process and delivered a turn-key system, making it an attractive investment opportunity for our business.”
The project initiated in late spring ’14 and came online in July. The installation will participate in Connecticut’s Zero Emission Renewable Energy Certificate (or “ZREC”) program and secured a 15-year contract with Connecticut Light & Power Company.
