Ecolibrium Solar recently announced the EcoFoot2+ Ballasted Racking System – chosen by Continental Electrical Construction Company (CECCo) to secure a 3.5-MW solar array – has been successfully delivered to the jobsite at Magid Glove and Safety Manufacturing Company in Romeoville, Illinois.
When completed in November 2018, the array will be the largest rooftop installation in the Midwest. Electricity generated from the array will offset 100% of Magid’s energy load and supports their mission as an innovator and cost-saving leader in the personal protective equipment (PPE) industry.
Ecolibrium Solar provided onsite technical support as the installation began on this record breaking solar array.
Magid awarded the project to Chicago-based electrical contractor CECCo and Convergence Energy, a Midwest C&I project developer. Magid Glove and Safety is a manufacturer and supplier of safety solutions and personal protection equipment (PPE).
EcoFoot2+ provides a structurally rigid and electrically connected array while simplifying the installation process for flat-roof arrays. The system has an impressive install speed of 13.5 modules per installer-hour, as rated by DNV-GL.
“EcoFoot2+ will speed the installation of this significant array,” says Sam Veague, Chief Operating Officer for Ecolibrium Solar. “We are thrilled to be a part of this big win for solar. We look forward to providing more solutions to CECCo and Convergence Energy as they continue to put solar on rooftops across the Midwest.”
This is the first large-scale C&I project benefiting from recent legislation passed in Illinois. The Future Energy Jobs Act (FEJA), passed in late 2016, will create jobs and support economic development in the renewable energy sector thru the monetization of the green energy attributes, or RECs (renewable energy certificates).
