Perdue, Standard Solar and Washington Gas Energy Services (WGES) have inaugurated a PV array at Perdue's Bridgeville, Del., facility, which is home to a feed mill and grain facility.
The installation, consisting of 6,720 solar modules, represents the first phase of a total 11,000 panels being installed at two Perdue facilities. The panels are owned by WGES and were installed by Standard Solar of Rockville, Md. Perdue will purchase electricity generated by the solar panels at guaranteed prices.
The second phase of the installation is currently under construction at the Perdue corporate offices in Salisbury, Md., and is expected to be complete in October, according to the companies. Both systems will generate a combined average of 3,700 MWh annually.
