THE TUCKERTON GROUP IS GOING GREEN
January 12, 2012
TURNERSVILLE, NJ – SolarWorks NJ, LLC, one of the oldest solar installers in New Jersey, with proven expertise in designing, building, and managing residential and commercial solar energy projects, is proud to announce they will be constructing a solar array at Tuckerton Medical Center, expected to open early in 2012.
Located on Tuckerton Road in Marlton, SolarWorks NJ will install a 40.80 kW solar energy system on the roof. The solar array will produce approximately 44,498 kilowatt hours annually, offsetting a portion of the electric load at the building.
The system will be comprised of 167 Trina 240 Watt modules on a Unirac SolarMount racking system. The system will utilize SMA Sunny Boy inverters with a sophisticated web monitoring system. The monitoring system will display measured values and data from the system.
"We decided to go solar because the financial and economical benefits are measurable," said Dr. Carlyn Phucas, an owner of The Tuckerton Group. “We'll save money in the long run by producing our own electricity and we'll dramatically reduce our pollution contribution immediately,” says Phucas.
The Tuckerton Group is contributing to combating greenhouse gas emission and global warming with the installation of the solar system. The system will derive clean energy from the sun, offsetting 40 tons of carbon dioxide pollution, saving the equivalent of 95,909 miles of auto driving and planting 6.165 acres of trees.
The system is eligible for a 30% Federal Energy Grant from the United States Treasury Department. The cash grant in lieu of tax credit program has expired, however the 30% tax credit still remains an attractive incentive for any commercial entity looking to go solar.
System installation will begin the end of January.
