Bridgewater, NJ and Short Hills, NJ (PRWEB) September 22, 2011
MetroTek Electrical Services Co., completed installation of over 130 solar photovoltaic panels on the roof of Community Congregational Church of Short Hills, NJ. The Church looks forward to offsetting a portion of their utility bill while earning renewable energy credits (RECs) and gaining a valuable income stream.
“I think it’s great to see more and more schools, churches, and business embracing the advantages of renewable energy. It’s been a pleasure working with the local zoning board to make the future a little greener for the Short Hill’s community,” stated Reiner Jaeckle, Chief Operations Officer of MetroTek. “Unfortunately the project didn’t qualify for the New Jersey State grant we looked to utilize, but we applaud the decision makers at Community Congregational Church who still knew a great opportunity when they saw one.” The energy generated by the system will help power the Montessori Children’s Academy located behind the Church. The project also stimulated the local economy by utilizing local union electricians and ordering materials from area vendors.
The scope of work for the project included replacing the existing circuit breaker panel, installation of a 30kW inverter and photovoltaic panels, wiring for the system and connection to the utility grid. MetroTek also created the pathway through which Community Power will be able to sell the renewable energy credits generated by the system. MetroTek Electrical Services oversaw the project engineering and installation of the new roof.
Energy Alliance Group LLC provided the bonding and surety for the solar energy project. “We are pleased to be able to help MetroTek Electrical Services and the Community Congregational Church realize their goals to provide clean energy for their community members,” stated Eric Abeshaus, CEO of Energy Alliance.

About Community Congregational Church
Community Congregational Church was founded by eight friends in 1953 who felt the need for a simplified, non-liturgical form of worship. Their objectives were to bring people together in the name of Christ and to create a Christian fellowship with neither rigid dogmas nor creeds as a condition of membership. These objectives remain a foundation of the church.
