United Solar Ovonic LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Energy Conversion Devices Inc., has supplied 700 kW of photovoltaic (PV) laminates to TurtleEnergy LLC, an electric equipment distributor based in Linden, N.J.
According to the companies, the laminates will be installed on a 350,000 square-foot building leased by East Coast Warehouse & Distribution from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. American Energy Technologies, Wayne, N.J., was chosen to manage all aspects of the installation, from the design phase through the commissioning of the system.
‘The unique design issues of the lightweight building structure dictated a correspondingly lightweight solution, making the UNI-SOLAR product the logical choice for this system,’ says Richard King, American Energy Technologies' president.
Over 5,140 UNI-SOLAR peel-and-stick PV laminates were installed on the building's rooftop for the 700 kW system, which will generate a capacity of 800,000 kWh of electricity per year, the companies add.
