Tecta Solar, a division of Tecta America Corp., has completed the installation of a 511.5 kW rooftop solar PV system for Harleysville Insurance in Harleysville, Pa. The project is projected to generate approximately 15% of the annual energy needs for the insurance company's corporate headquarters, or 623 MWh of energy, according to Tecta Solar.
Tecta managed the project from start to finish. Services included development, securing a grant, design, engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of the roof-mounted project. The project incorporated panels from ET Solar, an SMA inverter and a Sunlink racking system.
Harleysville Insurance received a $355,000 grant from Pennsylvania's Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) to help fund the project. Tecta says it prepared the grant application on behalf of the insurance company, which was awarded the grant via the CFA's competitive application process.
