Wire & Plastic Machinery Completes Solar System in Rhode Island

Posted by on Thu, Jan, 16, 2014

Wire & Plastic Machinery Corp. has recently completed a solar system on the roof of its warehouse building located in Attleboro, MA.  The project, which was funded fully via a partnership between Altus Power and Wire and Plastic, and installed by KRN Solar, will sell the electricity directly to National Grid in Rhode Island through a competitively awarded 15 year contract.  All of the power generated by the system will be sold to National Grid who will in turn deliver the clean energy to its customers. Wire and Plastic will receive a clean energy system on their property as well as roof lease payments for the length of the contract.

The 498 kW system is composed of 2,128 solar panels and will produce approximately 625,000 kWh per year. The energy created will offset 328 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions, which is the equivalent of the CO2 emissions from about 36,768 gallons of gasoline every year.
