Tecta Solar, a division of Tecta America Corp., recently completed the installation of a rooftop solar photovoltaic system on SKF USA Inc.’s LEED-certified headquarters in the Montgomery County town of Lansdale.
The project should generate 500 megawatt hours of energy in the first year, which is equivalent to powering 48 average-sized homes annually, the company said.
Tecta Solar, based in Fort Washington, provided a full-service solution for SKF USA and managed the project from start to finish. Services included development, design engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of the roof-mounted project.
The SKF USA headquarters is the result of an 18-month, $23 million brownfield redevelopment project, designed for minimal environmental impact.
Tecta Solar also recently finished the installation of a rooftop solar photovoltaic system for Harleysville Insurance in Harleysville.
The project should generate approximately 15 percent of the annual energy needs for the insurance company’s corporate headquarters, or 623 megawatts of energy – which is equivalent to powering 62 average homes for a year.
Tecta Solar provided a full-service solution for Harleysville and managed the project from start to finish. Services included development, securing a grant, design, engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of the roof-mounted project.
Harleysville received a $355,000 grant from Pennsylvania’s Commonwealth Financing Authority to help fund the project.
