The PV project has a carbon footprint reduction of 1,410 metric tons of CO2 every year while offsetting 100% of A&A Global Industries’ electricity usage.

The system was installed on the headquarters of A&A Global Industries Inc., a premiere manufacturer and distributor of toys, candy and novelties for vending, amusement and family entertainment industries. The system, located in Cockeysville, Maryland, will generate in excess of 1,627 kilowatts of clean, renewable energy each year. The PV project has a carbon footprint reduction of 1,410 metric tons of CO2 every year while offsetting 100% of A&A Global Industries’ electricity usage. The company’s Executive Vice President, Steve Kovens commented, “The solar power system at our headquarters is a demonstration of A&A Global's dedication to sustainability across our business. Our partnership with RER Energy Group provides cost-effective power and helps us meet our environmental goals.”

On top of the environmental benefits, A&A Global is projected to pay off the rooftop system in less than four years while saving roughly $9.2 million over the life span of the project, compared to their current electric utility.

RER Energy spearheaded the development of the project, ensuring its engineering, procurement and construction were completed on time and above industry standards. “We have completed projects with KB Racking in the past and knew their reliable installation support was exactly what we needed to complete a project of this size. The EkonoRack mounting solution is the simplest, fastest product we have worked with to date,” Mike Barnes, Project Manager with RER Energy Group.

Peter Aulich, CEO of KB Racking, commented, “We are thrilled to be working with RER Energy again to equip the A&A Global headquarters with solar energy. Our partnership with RER Energy is continuing to grow and we look forward to working with them to bring more solar energy to the region.”
