Project Summary

This 125 kW, net-metered, distributed generation photovoltaic system serves Kimball Union Academy in Plainfield NH. Installed in 2015, the system combines ground mounted and roof top arrays utilizing a DC to DC optimized topology to maximize power harvest. Both roof mount and ground mount arrays were installed using our patented EZ-PV Meta Module approach. The project will generate 156,000 kWh per year.

Norwich Solar Technologies Scope

Full scope Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC). During this project Norwich Technologies worked directly with School administrators and Board through initial, conceptual planning stages through final installation. Norwich Technologies played a key role in securing incentives and working with the local utility to ensure optimal production and return on investment. Norwich Technologies EZ-PV Meta-Module approach greatly improved installation efficiency while minimizing site disruption. The metamodule approach increased safety and decreased crew size while minimizing material handling and site disruption.

Production Statistics

The system is scheduled to produce 156,000 kWh per year which is the equivalent of offsetting over 150,000 lbs of carbon emissions and saving Kimball Union Academy $200,000 over the 25 year warranted production life of the system.
