Specialty Printer Adds Solar to Power Their Facility in East Longmeadow, MA
EnterSolar, a leading provider of solar solutions to commercial enterprises, announced the completion of a 730 Kilowatt (kW) solar system for Sullivan Paper at their facility in East Longmeadow, MA. Sullivan Paper is a premier rotogravure and flexographic printer with more than 75 years in business. The solar system is made up of 2,318 individual panels, and it will generate approximately 883,700 Kilowatt-hours (kWh) of clean, renewable energy annually.
The solar system will generate energy with significant environmental benefits to Sullivan Paper and their Massachusetts area neighbors by reducing carbon dioxide emissions by more than 942,000 pounds annually. These benefits are equivalent to saving 48,400 gallons of gas or planting 406 acres of U.S. forests a year.
Expert in the dynamic legislative landscape, EnterSolar worked with Sullivan Paper to ensure that they utilized the MA SREC II Program, which provides solar system owners with revenue for every megawatt-hour (MWh) of solar electricity generated, in addition to the savings on their electric bill. Sullivan Paper also utilized the 30% Federal Investment Tax Credit.
“At EnterSolar, we take special care to listen to the specific objectives of our clients and develop customized solar solutions that maximize their benefits,” said Paul Ahern, president, EnterSolar. “Through the state and federal solar incentives available, EnterSolar was able to develop a solar solution that not only advanced Sullivan Paper’s sustainability initiatives, but also benefited their bottom line.”
