Project Summary

This 115kW, net-metered, distributed generation photovoltaic system serves Vermeer Solar in Canaan, NH. Installed in 2015, the system is a ground-mounted array utilizing a DC to DC optimized topology to maximize power harvest. The arrays were installed using our patented EZ-PV MetaModule approach. The project will generate approximately 135,00 kWh per year.

Norwich Solar Scope

Full scope Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC). During this project, Norwich Solar worked directly with the client from initial conceptual planning stages through final installation. Norwich Solar played a key role in securing incentives and working with the local utility to ensure optimal production and return on investment. Norwich Solar EZ-PV MetaModule 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 approximately 135,000 kWh per year which is the equivalent of offsetting over 3,441,015 lbs.* of carbon emissions over the 30-year production life of the system. This is the equivalent to offsetting over 600 tons of coal.

* Estimate based on marginal emission rates for the New England regional grid as of 2011 (the most recent data available).
