Genie Solar Energy has completed a rooftop solar installation for Kraft Power, a generator and cogeneration systems provider. The 57.5-kW custom rooftop solar system was installed at Kraft Power’s distribution center in Pompton Plains, New Jersey.
“Kraft Power is elated that, with the completion of this project, we are able to offset up to 100% of our average electricity consumption with electricity generated by American-made solar panels,” said Owen Duffy, CEO of Kraft Power. “As a provider of on-site critical power systems to our clients’ facilities, we continue to lead by example through the expansion of our solar program. With the solar arrays now in place at our New Jersey location, we have taken another big step to reduce our consumption of utility-generated power while substantially cutting electricity costs.”
Kraft Power supplies on-site power systems to hospitals, factories, communications and other facilities that require reliable energy generation. The company also provides efficient cogeneration solutions. Many of these systems convert renewable biogas waste into clean energy.
“We are delighted to have designed, built and installed this successful project for Kraft Power, one of the leaders in its field,” said Sara Schwandt, Genie Solar’s managing director. “We designed this project to maximize the return on investment to Kraft Power over the project lifetime utilizing solar panels made in America. Since completion, our system’s performance has exceeded expectations, further enhancing the project economics.
“We deliver tailor-made strategic energy plans and installations to maximize value for our clients whether their priorities are greater energy efficiency or cleaner and greener solutions,” Schwandt continued. “We also help clients finance, lease and buy solar generation systems while maximizing the value of grants and other incentives.”
