New Bedford, MA (PRWEB) April 23, 2014 -- Beaumont Solar, a leader in the New England solar market, has been selected to design, engineer and install a 1MW rooftop solar system for Zero Waste Solutions, a revolutionary recycling facility in Rochester, MA. The 90,000-square-foot building, which broke ground in December of last year, will include approximately 3300 solar panels and the initial production estimate is 1,100,000kW hours per year, resulting in this innovative company generating nearly all electricity required at the location.
"I am pleased to have Beaumont Solar selected as the solar solutions provider for this project with Zero Waste Solutions," said Beaumont Solar President and CEO Phil Cavallo. "The two companies are totally aligned to provide clean energy, zero waste and green jobs for Rochester and the surrounding towns."
According to Cavallo, both companies are based in New Bedford, which was recently named as one of the top solar cities in the country. Their community connection, coupled with the fact that Beaumont Solar is a key employer for electricians and apprentices from New Bedford and the surrounding coastal towns, offers a win-win for the community.
The Zero Waste Solutions facility will convert municipal solid waste, construction and demolition debris, single-stream recyclables, electronic products and more into fuel briquettes that are similar to coal, but burn much cleaner.
"As a business citizen and resident of Southeastern Massachusetts and the Cape, we are totally focused on the push for zero waste," said Zero Waste Solutions President Mike Camara, who also owns sister companies New Bedford Waste Services and ABC Disposal Services. "We know that 90 percent of discarded material in solid waste may be recycled. This new facility is designed to filter that out and repurpose it for much-needed clean energy. I have visited processing plants in Europe and across the U.S. and nobody has what we are building here.
"Incorporating solar technology into the operation of the building has been a goal all along," he continued, "and our partnership with Beaumont Solar will ensure that it is done right and yields the best output possible. We are very excited to be working together to make all of the communities we serve more sustainable for years to come."
Beaumont Solar, which was recently awarded New England SunPower Dealer of the Year by one of the country's leading solar equipment manufacturers, focuses on rooftop, carport, ground array and landfill solar projects to provide predictable, sustainable, low-cost energy to businesses, schools, universities and governmental projects.
