Solar installation has never been a better value for commercial operations.

The 30 kW solar installation created by Velo Solar on the roof of Chemique Adhesives in Kennesaw has begun operation.

The array sits atop the North American headquarters of Chemique Adhesives, a company with revenues of about $17.5 million per year and customers throughout Europe, the Middle East and North America. Chemique, based in the U.K., makes industrial adhesives, sealants and adhesive application equipment.

Dedicated to the development of products and processes that are the most environmentally sustainable in their line, Chemique’s addition of solar power at its Kennesaw facility is part of its corporate commitment to sustainability.

The solar installation designed and built by Atlanta-based Velo Solar will reduce Chemique’s CO2 emissions by 30.6 tons annually, the equivalent of planting 784 trees.

Tony McMullen, president of Chemique Adhesives, said Velo Solar’s reputation for quality and value, along with the company’s commitment to customer service, assured Chemique of optimal performance.

Those characteristics are in keeping with the effective, eco-friendly product lines Chemique has introduced for its customers, and with its corporate mission.

“Here at Chemique, we have a passion for being on the cutting edge of technology and ahead of regulation,” McMullen said. “We are always trying to do better by the manufacturers we serve and the community we operate in.”

In addition to the solar panels on the roof, the system installed by Velo Solar at Chemique Adhesives in Kennesaw includes a display panel in the lobby that will show the real-time output of the solar resource through the proprietary PowerEnfo™ analytical platform. Developed by Velo Solar’s parent company, PowerEnfo™ provides a constant information stream on energy consumption to facilitate effective energy management. It tracks asset performance and issues alerts on unusual events to keep them from becoming costly.

Mark Bell, president of Velo Solar, said the combination of rooftop solar and PowerEnfo™ tracking gives Chemique the right combination of tools to lower its energy costs and make its operations as sustainable as possible.

“We are proud to partner with Chemique in its commitment to environmental sustainability and smart energy management,” Bell said. “Solar installation has never been a better value for commercial operations. With the added monitoring of consumption and performance, Chemique should see a return on its investment in three to five years.”
