Cubellis, an architecture, interior design and engineering services firm, has completed work for the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) and Borrego Solar Systems Inc., on the design and installation of a 100 kW roof-mounted photovoltaic system at the Deer Island Treatment Plant, located on Deer Island in Boston Harbor.

‘By utilizing wind load calculations, we were able to verify the capacity of the roof connectors to hold the panels down in the event of very high wind loads in excess of 100 mph – well above the industry standard,’ says James Trant, principal and structural engineering at Cubellis.

‘The solar power system at the Deer Island Water Treatment Plant is the type of project that embodies Massachusetts' progressive, commitment to renewable energy,’ adds Brendan Neagle, vice president of business development at Borrego Solar Systems.
