Solect Energy and Mouli Engineering announced the commissioning of a 236-kW SolarPod Crown installation in the City of Fairhaven, Massachusetts. The cement roof and the 140-mph wind zone at the Fairhaven Housing Authority (FHA) required a new solution from a standard roof mounted system.
After extensive research, John Mosher, Vice President of Energy Solutions at Solect, decided to install the SolarPod Crown.
“This was a great team effort. The experience of our project manager, operations and design team combined with the engineering support from Mouli resulted in the best possible solution for the customer. The innovative ‘no roof holes’ design, high wind capability, and simplicity led us to the SolarPod Crown for the FHA roof,” said Mosher. “This was our first installation of SolarPod Crown and Mouli was like an extension of our team.”
Solect and Mouli Engineering plan to continue the relationship and apply the SolarPod solution when its the best option for the customer.
“This 236-kW SolarPod Crown installation in the City of Fairhaven which experiences 140 mph wind loads shows our commitment to high standards and unique solutions that meet our customers needs,” said Mouli Vaidyanathan founder and designer of the SolarPod . “Not having to penetrate the roof saved a lot of labor and cost.”
