Project Summary

Prime Subaru partnered with Norwich Solar Technologies of White River Junction, Vermont, to install a 54.9-kilowatt DC, Net-Metered Photovoltaic (PV) System on their new dealership facility on Sykes Mountain Avenue, Hartford, Vermont.

Prime Subaru Solar PV by NST

The solar array will provide Prime Subaru long-term energy cost reduction and stability through the integration of clean, renewable solar electricity.

We provided a turnkey system with all engineering, permitting, procurement, construction and commissioning.

The flat membrane roof and the building’s siting and orientation allows for a design with very good array orientation for capture of solar irradiance.

The proposed design utilizes ballasted racking with 10° tilt with 1.6’ intrarow spacing. A ballast mount system sits on the surface only,  not penetrating the flat membrane roof and offering protection from UV damage.

Norwich Solar Technologies Scope

Norwich Solar Technologies provided complete services for the project including permitting, site analysis, engineering, procurement, construction and long-term maintenance of the system.

Production Statistics

In addition to long-term energy savings, the solar array will provide the environmental benefits of offsetting the equivalent of 3,793,110 lbs. of CO2 over its warranted 25-year lifespan.
