Commercial Roof Mounted System – EMSL in Cinnaminson, NJ
EMSL Analytical Inc. was established in 1981 and is one of the largest testing laboratories in the world. Dr. Frasca, owner, decided to install a solar pv system to help offset the large electric use they incur due to all the equipment at their corporate headquarters in Cinnaminson, NJ. Solar Electric NJ, LLC assisted EMSL in selecting a roofing contractor to install a new TPO roof prior to installation of the solar array, which was needed due to age. Dr. Frasca made the decision to include the roof of a large strip mall owned by him on the adjoining property, for additional space for the solar system to feed the electricity to EMSL. The two combined systems of 2,168 modules, totals over a half of meg in size (520,320 watts DC) and supplies EMSL with almost 40% of their annual needed kWhs. After the system was completed and operating, EMSL constructed additional labs in what was a large warehouse area. The solar system on a portion of the roof was dismantled during construction by us, and later re-installed for EMSL.
