Weatherproofing Technologies Inc. (WTI), a subsidiary of Tremco Inc., plans to construct a 3.36 MW PV project for the Neshaminy School District in Pennsylvania.
Arrays will be installed at the Neshaminy High School and Maple Point Middle School. Power generation from this renewable energy source is expected to provide approximately 90% of the schools' current usage, according to WTI.
The project calls for construction of arrays installed on the high school and middle school roofs as well as on covered bus parking structures. The $15 million project includes no capital outlay for the Neshaminy School District. It will also include $2 million in upgrades to the Maple Point Middle School necessary to receive the rooftop solar array.
The project is being funded through energy grants from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's Department of Community and Economic Development and through federal tax credits. Construction will begin as soon as the grant money is released and is expected to take 10 months.Â
