Paradise Energy Solutions has completed a 1-MW solar array on the warehouse and corporate headquarters rooftop of family-owned home furnishing retailer Levin Furniture in Smithton, Pennsylvania.
“We’re proud to have completed this latest solar system,” said Company Chairman, Robert Levin. “This project continues our investment in the company and adds to several important environmentally responsible practices at Levin’s.”
The new 1 MW array is the fifth rooftop solar project completed by Levin’s. The local family business is believed to be the first furniture company in the United States to use solar power with its 2004 installation at its Monroeville location. Levin Furniture was recognized in 2008 by the State of Pennsylvania with its “Waste Watchers Award” given to organizations that have shown leadership in recycling and other environmental initiatives.
As the largest solar installation by a retail company in Western Pennsylvania, the system will generate 70% of the distribution center’s annual electricity needs. Solbridge Energy Advisors was tapped to serve as the project consultant, broker, and owner’s representative. Solbridge worked with Levin leadership on all aspects of the project. Paradise Energy Solutions constructed the solar array.
