Pennsylvania-based Dynamic Energy recently completed two solar photovoltaic installations totaling 583 kW for Estes Express Lines, a Virginia-based trucking and freight services company. The two installations are for company terminals in Maryland: a 308 kW system in Elkton and a 275 kW system in Baltimore.
The Elkton terminal PV system connects with DELMARVA Power, and the Baltimore terminal connects with Baltimore Gas & Electric. Dynamic Energy says the Elkton facility is expected toÂ produce 360 MWh of electricity annually through 1,232 rooftop solar panels, while the Baltimore facility is expected to generate over 321 MWh per year through 1,100 rooftop panels. The company adds that an estimated 93% of the current electricity needed by the two facilities will be supplied by solar.
‘Converting these terminals to solar power generation is a significant step to reducing our carbon footprint and has the dual benefit of reducing energy costs, which helps us remain competitive in today's marketplace,’ says Estes President and CEO Rob Estes.
