Dimension Fabricators Goes Solar
Since 1984, Dimension Fabricators has been a major supplier of concrete reinforcing steel products to the construction industry. They produce rebar, epoxy coated steel, wire mesh, assembled cages, welded steel fabrications, threaded anchors and other related products. As one of the largest companies of its kind in the eastern United States, Dimension Fabricators has its products supporting many of the most complex structures across the eastern seaboard.
Solar Photovoltaic System Specifications & Environmental Benefits
Dimension Fabricators’ solar photovoltaic system has a total capacity of 945 kW and is comprised of 3,318 285W modules on the roof of their facility in Glenville, NY. The system is projected to produce around 1,043 MWh of electricity yearly and offset 99% of the facility’s total annual electrical usage.
The environmental benefit of the system is equivalent to saving over 80,000 gallons of gas annually, powering nearly 80 homes for a year or planting around 19,000 trees. Dimension Fabricators’ use of solar power will also result in the avoidance of 733 metric tons of CO2 per year.
Significant Financial Returns through Solar
This project was a sound capital investment for Dimension Fabricators that utilized the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority’s (NYSERDA) NY-Sun program, which provides financial incentives to businesses that install solar energy systems.
EnterSolar’s expertise in optimizing system design, combined with the NY-Sun Incentive program, yields Dimension Fabricators a rapid payback period and an attractive long-term internal rate of return.
