Foodtown installs solar energy rooftop systems
Manasquan, N.J. Norkus Enterprises, operator of Foodtown supermarkets across Monmouth and Ocean counties in New Jersey, has undergone four of six planned rooftop installations provided by Solis Partners LLC, a full-service integrator of commercial solar power systems.
The systems consist of approximately 2,700 Solyndra solar panels, producing over 600,000 kWh of electricity and eliminating more than 820,000 lbs. of CO2 emissions annually. The system’s ability to cover more rooftop area and capture more light than traditional flat-plated panels will result in more annual solar electricity generation and will provide clean, low-cost power for more than 25 years, according to Norkus.
The PV panels convert sunlight to electric power and produce no air pollution, hazardous waste and do not require liquid or gaseous fuels to be transported or combusted.
