Hardware Manufacturer in Connecticut Goes Solar in Three Phases

Corbin Russwin dates back to 1839 when the company began as a door part supplier. Since then, the company has grown to become a leader in hardware manufacturing. Corbin Russwin is currently represented by ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions, a subdivision of ASSA ABLOY, a global leader in manufacturing door locks.

Corbin Russwin, as well as ASSA ABLOY, is committed to making its business more sustainable. The company has an end-of-life recycling program that allows customers to return their used Corbin Russwin products and have them properly recycled, at no cost to the consumer. As part of its sustainability effort, Corbin Russwin has partnered with EnterSolar to complete a 1,441 kW solar system at its headquarters in Berlin, Connecticut.


Solar Photovoltaic System Specifications

The ground-mounted solar system is made up of 4,178 individual solar modules and will produce an estimated 1,802,092 kWh of electricity annually. The environmental benefits of the systems are equivalent to saving 90,191 gallons of gasoline or powering 184 homes per year. Corbin Russwin’s use of solar power will also result in the avoidance of approximately 1,757,283 pounds of CO2 per year.

Significant Financial Returns

Through the Connecticut ZREC (Zero Emissions Renewable Energy Credits) Program, Corbin Russwin receives credits for every MWh of solar energy generated. It can sell those credits to the market for revenue. EnterSolar’s expertise in optimizing system design and solar project financing made going solar a sound capital investment for Corbin Russwin.
