Pro Pel Recycling Facility Energizes a 257 kW Solar System
South Deerfield, MA – May 8, 2012 – Pro Pel Plastech, a recycling solutions center in Massachusetts, has acquired a new roof mounted solar array that re-defines the meaning of “green” for the company. Dynamic Energy, a fully integrated energy developer, installed over 1,000 modules at the Massachusetts factory. Now the organization is not only recycling post-consumer materials, but also utilizing clean energy for its processes.
Pro Pel was the first solar project in Massachusetts to receive a Green Loan from Mass Development, an economic development organization that works with businesses, nonprofits, and local, state, and federal officials. Mass Development awarded Pro Pel the loan in order to finance the construction of the solar project.
"Dynamic Energy’s professionalism and high quality of workmanship was evident from the beginning of our solar project. By providing us a road map of the construction process, along with frequent updates, we were always clear on the project’s progress. From start to finish, we were more than satisfied with the project," said Joe Nickerson, Vice President at Pro Pel.
Over it’s 25 year warranted life, the 257 kW system is expected to eliminate approximately 4,500 metric tons of CO2, which is equivalent to removing 875 cars from Massachusetts roads. The solar array will offset approximately 25% of the power that will be used by the plant for all of their various recycling processes.
