Arista Power Inc. has received an order valued at $574,000 for a 166 kW solar photovoltaic array from Stan's Harley-Davidson dealership in Batavia, N.Y.
The PV installation will consist of more than 600 roof-mounted solar panels and be tied into the building's existing electrical service and interconnected to utility National Grid's transmission lines. The solar array is expected to generate 100% of Stan's current annual electricity consumption. Arista Power plans to install the PV system early in the fourth quarter of this year.
‘Now is the time for us to invest into the solar market, especially with all of the tax credits and incentives available for New York businesses," says Darryl Horzempa, president and owner of Stan's Harley-Davidson." Making this investment in solar will fix our energy costs moving forward, and help better plan for future generations in our family business. This solar PV array is one of the centerpieces of our sustainability initiative, along with our environmental outlook and recycling programs.’
