Velo Solar, a leading Georgia provider of commercial solar projects, has completed installation of a 100 kilowatt solar generation system for Seachem Laboratories.

Seachem is an independent, privately-owned maker of high-quality products for aquariums and other pet-care necessities serving the industry for more than 30 years. Company executives decided to incorporate solar into its energy resources this year because the falling cost of solar installation has made solar very cost-effective.

With the company’s rooftop solar array now generating, Seachem CEO Greg Morin said power bills are about 1/3 lower than before. With those savings, he said, the solar installation from Velo should pay for itself in about five years. The system will continue to generate power for more than 20 years with minimal maintenance.

“Velo Solar provided us with a professional, well-executed, turnkey solar energy solution,” Morin said. “Any issues that came up were handled directly and rapidly. I would not hesitate to recommend Velo to anyone considering a large scale solar installation.”

Velo President Mark Bell said he is pleased to help companies like Seachem save on energy costs with solar.

“Solar’s ROI for commercial customers offers them significant savings on energy they can use for other corporate line items such as inventory and personnel,” he said. “In an economy that squeezes corporate profits from every angle, solar provides long-term protection from rising utility rates.”

Velo Solar is one of Georgia’s largest and most respected solar EPC firms, offering a range of energy-saving options and custom engineering. In addition to solar, Velo Solar offers energy-saving LED lighting and its proprietary PowerEnfo energy management software.

“Velo takes care of every aspect of the project, creating a unique solution for every customer’s energy-efficiency needs,” Berger said.
